Haynes and Boone Appellate Group Wins Reversal of $25.5 Million Jury Award
Haynes and Boone’s appellate attorneys persuaded the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse a $25.5 million jury award tried in Houston, but revolving around a real estate deal in New England.
In an opinion issued Sept. 28, Houston-based partners Lynne Liberato
and Kent Rutter
led the Haynes and Boone team, which also included associates Christina Crozier
and Polly Graham
. In LHC Nashua Partnership v. PDNED Sagamore Nashua
, they represented a real estate developer, successfully convincing the court to vacate the award for alleged lost profits arising out of a contract concerning the transfer of rights to purchase shopping mall property.
The victory was one of the biggest appellate wins in Texas during 2011, reversing a 2010 decision that was recognized by Verdict Search as one of the publication’s Top 100 Verdicts for the year.
