Atlanta Trial Lawyer Russell H. Hippe, representing the key target Defendant Mr. Lonnie Carroll, secured his client’s dismissal without his client having to pay one dime in damages.
Atlanta, GA - Northern District of Georgia. This was in a complex federal RICO case that involved millions of dollars of prospective liability and involved allegations that Mr. Carroll, a manager and trusted employee of the Plaintiff NCI, had deprived his employer of honest services and had improperly sold millions of dollars of discounted good to other defendants.
Mr. Carroll denied civil wrongdoing. The defense was challenging. It involved application of the federal RICO statute, of federal criminal law, of federal privilege and other complex trial issues including the application of selective privileges and special objections within video taped depositions under the federal rules.
The strategy worked. Mr. Russell Hippe had this to say after the dismissal. “I was fighting some of the best lawyers in the country on this case. They were really after my guy. I was right there with them, held by own in motion practice and complex discovery - high stakes depositions - and secured a great result for my client. He will now be able to move forward in his life without the burden of some massive federal judgement.”
