Defamation Lawsuit Tops Jury Awards in California | Online Defamation Law Suits

Posted by admin | June 28th, 2010

The 2009 list of top verdict awards in California courts is out, published by The Recorder–which is a California legal newsletter. At the top of the list sits a defamation lawsuit. This is not entirely uncommon, we have seen many times that defamation lawsuits can reap large rewards–but they are typically not very high profile.

The jury in the case awarded $370 million to five former employees of Guess? Inc., who were accused of embezzlement and found to be innocent. The Recorder had a full list of the top ten rewards given in California in 2009, as well as a side-by-side comparison chart of the same statistics in New York.

Also of interest is that the defendant in the suit, Georges Marciano, the founder of Guess? Inc., is also attempting to run for Governor of California as an Independent this year.
