CSK Partners Barry Postman and Karly Wannos obtained a complete defense verdict in a high-profile 5-day bench trial in West Palm Beach. CSK represented a wealthy businessman and a local preparatory school he founded in a claim brought by the school’s former Athletic Director for defamation. The Plaintiff was represented by Jack Scarola of Searcy Denny Scarola Barnhart & Shipley, PA, and the case was litigated for 3 years. The Court allowed Plaintiffs to plead punitive damages, and Plaintiff and his wife asked for over $18 Million in damages at trial. The presiding judge took the matter under advisement for several months before issuing a reasoned order, whereby all of Plaintiffs’ claims were rejected. Jana Leichter and Michelle Frezer-D’Alena assisted in the trial preparation.
