C&A Secures $450,000 For Widow in Partnership Dispute

In July of 2018, Mr. Crockett tried a partnership dispute case in Ventura County Superior Court on behalf of a widowed plaintiff. Through a creative legal strategy, Mr. Crockett secured more than $450,000 in pretrial payments from the defendant; the widow otherwise would have received nothing at trial. At verdict, the jury sided with the widow on every substantive breach of contract question, but the widow lost out on an additional recovery due to a statute of limitations issue (which we believe the jury wrongly decided).
