Significant Victory for Our Client

About

The Harris Firm, P.C. in Dallas is pleased to report that this year began with a significant victory. The firm went to trial in State District Court in Houston (Harris County) Texas, in what we understand to be the first 419e (single employer plan) lawsuit to ever be tried in this country. This was a six-day trial before a 12 person jury (along with one alternate). The firm was successful in not only securing a finding of fraud against an agent/financial advisor who sold our client into the plan, but this fraud finding was unanimous among the jurors. Moreover, the jury found fraud by clear and convincing evidence, thus allowing the opportunity for a second phase of deliberations on exemplary/punitive damages. Ultimately, our clients prevailed with a total jury award of $2,954.000.00.
