Construction client successfully defended in federal jury trial.

March 1, 2019

Amie Sivon and Bill Pollock successfully defended a builder against claims of copyright infringement, violations of the Lanham Act, and unfair and deceptive trade practices in a week long federal jury trial before the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina.  A competing building contractor claimed that the defendant builder had copied its house plans, but the jury found the defendant’s similar house plans were independently created and not copied, which resulted in a complete defense verdict for our firm’s client.
