Michael Simmons Obtains Defense Verdict in Breach of Contract Action
Michael Simmons obtained a defense verdict for the firm’s client in a breach of contract action in Mississippi state court. The case involved alleged breach of a commercial paving contract in which the paving contractor sought actual and punitive damages. After the close of all evidence, the court agreed with the firm’s client that the contract was ambiguous and should be interpreted against the paving contractor, as drafter of the contract. Based on that finding, the court dismissed the case.
