Arizona Office Logs Trial Victory Before a Live Jury

Congratulations to Arizona Partner Adam Campbell for successfully trying a business dispute over a limited liability company’s distribution of assets during its wind-up. This case was the first live civil jury trial in Pinal County Superior Court since the resumption of jury trials under Arizona’s COVID-19 emergency orders.

Plaintiffs claimed that our clients, a company and two of its members, short-changed them during the wind-up of their LLC. Our clients asserted that the distributions correctly accounted for Plaintiffs’ agreement to pay a past-due tax liability. Plaintiffs sought recovery of both compensatory and punitive damages.  In a hotly contested case where the credibility of all parties was at issue, the jury afterward specifically noted Mr. Campbell’s professionalism throughout the trial.

After five trial days and an hour of deliberation, the jury returned a full defense verdict in favor of BWB&O’s clients on all six counts of the Complaint, including a claim of fraud. Following the trial, the jury further commented that Mr. Campbell’s closing argument summarized well the points on which they already had focused. Congratulations on a great result!
