Successful Representation of Client in Breach of Contract Dispute
We represented a Catholic parish (among others) in a lawsuit filed by a former principal who had been fired. All fourteen claims asserted by the plaintiff in his Second Amended Complaint were initially dismissed by the trial court. On appeal, the Second District Court of Appeals concluded that the trial court properly dismissed all of the claims except the breach of contract claim against the parish (the principal was employed by the parish). Boyd v. Archdiocese of Cincinnati, 2nd Dist. Montgomery App. No. 25950, 2015-Ohio-1394. After the case was remanded, we tried the breach of contract claim for two days in the Montgomery County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas. On December 7, 2016, the trial court entered judgment in favor of the parish. Final Judgment Entry.
