Complex Commercial Litigation
A California corporation entered into a distributorship agreement with a Georgia corporation, granting it an exclusive right to distribute automotive audio products within the United States. In the first year, the distributor purchased more than the minimum annual required amount, but only sold a small number of the products. In the last month of the year, it transferred the unsold inventory on its books to a related company then filed suit, claiming that the California company breached the agreement by selling some of the returned items on the Internet. Bruce L. Ross & Company was able to show that the damages opinion of the plaintiff’s expert was unsupported by the evidence, was based on flawed assumptions, contained accounting errors and failed to comply with professional standards.
