Zekry v. Zekry & R. David Ben Barouck Corp.
Our attorneys secured a $1.9 million unanimous jury verdict for one of its private clients, a shareholder in one location of high-end NYC hair salon chain Amour de Hair, who was cut out of the profits due to underreporting by her former partner, who also happened to be her ex-husband.
Due to various procedural delays, the case (Zekry v. Zekry & R. David Ben Barouck Corp., New York County Supreme Court) took five years to get to trial. However, following a nine-day trial Litigation Counsel Michael Lynn was able to secure a unanimous jury verdict for the plaintiff in just three hours. In addition to $466,000 in compensatory damages and additional prejudgment interest expected, the jury awarded her $1.4 million in punitive damages. Our attorneys had earlier secured a receivership over the salon and an order of attachment against the assets of the ex-husband.
