Tim Rigsbee and Tiana Mykkeltvedt's Win in Defense Trial Featured in the Fulton County Daily Report

February 2, 2012

Tim Rigsbee and Tiana Mykkeltvedt are featured in the Fulton County Daily Report in an article about their recent win in a defense trial.

In the case, Bondurant Mixson represented two wholesalers of copier toner and printer cartridges against the Hong Kong subsidiary of a multinational Chinese conglomerate. Our client was sued in the United States District Court of the Northern District of Georgia asserting 11 counts and seeking over $3.8 million in damages. Bondurant Mixson answered and asserted counterclaims for breach of contract and breach of warranty.  We obtained summary judgment on 8 counts. The remaining claims and our counterclaims went to trial before a jury.  After all but one of the opposing claims was thrown out at directed verdict, a 12 person jury awarded our client damages as well as attorney’s fees that exceeded the amount awarded on the opposing claim by over $1 million.
