Rodrock v. Gumz, 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 57245

Represented plaintiffs in business dispute related to stallion management and partnership agreements. Client entered agreement with a farm to stand four Quarter Horse stallions, and also bred several mares in partnership with the farm.  A dispute arose over whether the farm was breeding personal and farm-owned mares to the client’s stallions without payment.  We pursued multiple contract and tort-based claims against the farm and coordinated and supervised the removal of all client horses from the property.  A federal district court applying Kentucky law denied defendants’ motion to dismiss four of our claims and found that the economic loss rule did not apply to service contracts.
