The multi-million dollar matter required a four day evidentiary hearing featuring testimony from multiple witnesses relating to trade secrets and associated policies/practices, patent review, expert forgery/handwriting analyses and contract non-competition and confidentiality enforcement.
- In 2018, after nearly three years of litigation and a trial wherein Mr. Cameron represented a sales company against a former sales manager for breach of non-competition and non-solicitation covenants, and theft of confidential information and trade secrets related to sales strategies and market analysis, the Court awarded Mr. Cameron’s client $601,000, including attorney’s fees. Prior settlement offers by Defendant did not exceed $100,000.
- In 2015, Mr. Cameron initiated an action on behalf of a Utah start-up technology company in a bet-the-company litigation matter arising from a breach of licensing agreement related to certain patent technology. The lawsuit alleged that an Australian entity had violated the Utah company’s exclusive world-wide license rights to patent technology, certain confidential information and other inventions. After a three day evidentiary hearing in Utah Federal District Court, the Court entered an injunction against the Australian company, its affiliated entities and all parties acting in concert or connection therewith, and awarded Mr. Cameron’s client its attorney’s fees. In April 2018, the Court entered a final judgment and order in favor of Mr. Cameron’s client in the amount of $4.7 million for damages stemming from the Australian company’s breach of, and interference with, the Utah company’s exclusive rights.

The student alleged fraud and asserted, among other things, that the Defendants operated a Ponzi scheme that resulted in failed investments. The Plaintiff sought millions of dollars in damages. After nearly five years of litigation, the Court dismissed Plaintiff’s lawsuit. Thereafter, the Plaintiff appealed the decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals who unanimously affirmed the trial court’s decision within three weeks of oral argument. Thereafter, in 2017, the trial court awarded Mr. Nash and Mr. Cameron’s client over $400,000 in attorney’s fees.

After the foreign company failed to appear and defend, the Utah Federal District Court entered judgment in the amount of $4.5 million based on the number of CAN-SPAM violations that existed in the emails.

After a three day trial, the Court upheld the judgment, and added the parent company as a judgment debtor for the total amount of the judgment.
