Popular local nightspot cleared in dispute over unpaid tab
After a weeklong jury trial, veteran trial lawyers Mike Brown and Alyssa Brockert delivered a hard-won victory for their client, a Westport club owner. Plaintiff claimed serious injury due to alleged wrongful detention after failing to pay his bill. The defense team showed that the injury was actually due to plaintiff resisting a lawful arrest. And the defense’s forensic analysis of plaintiff’s financial records established his failure to pay was no innocent mistake. The jury was out for 2 hours, and then exonerated defendants of all claims.
