Dismissal of Federal Lawsuit
We represented John Tisch and Tisch Environmental, Inc. in complex litigation in federal court in Boston, MA. In April 2012, Plaintiff BGI sued John Tisch and his company, Tisch Environmental, Inc. BGI sought millions of dollars in damages from Tisch, alleging Lanham Act violations and claims for misappropriation of trade secrets, conspiracy, and others. BGI also sought millions of dollars from Thomas Merrifield, the former President of BGI, as well as damages from Greentech Instruments, Inc. BGI attempted to add John Tisch’s brother as a defendant, but the Court granted our motion to dismiss due to lack of personal jurisdiction. Two days before the lawsuit was scheduled to begin in Boston, BGI dismissed the lawsuit. Tisch paid no money to BGI.
