General Counsel, P.C. is proud to announce that its litigation team won a recent case after securing a directed verdict in favor of its client, a large government contracting organization in the DMV area.
Our client was sued in Fairfax County Circuit Court by one of its subcontractors for breach of contract and wrongful termination. The case involved an agreement between our client and the Plaintiff corporation that performs support services for federal agencies. The lawsuit alleged over $1 million in damages for the alleged breach of the subcontractor agreement.
At the end of a two-day jury trial, General Counsel attorneys Heba Carter and Erika Gnazzo moved for a Motion to Strike and for Summary Judgment. Their motions were granted based on evidence that proved the contract at issue was between our client, and the Vice President of the Defendant corporation, not the corporation itself. Since the Plaintiff corporation was not a party to the contract, Mrs. Carter and Mrs. Gnazzo argued there was no standing to sue and no breach of contract, making it impossible for the Plaintiff corporation to be awarded relief. The judge agreed with this reasoning and found in favor of our client, deciding the case before it went to the jury.
