LPCH Team Represents Varsity Brands in Winning Effort in Noncompete Breach Battle

LPCH attorneys Michael HurstAndres Correa, and John Adams represented Varsity Brands in a noncompete breach trial. GC of Varsity Brands, Burton Brillhart, "determined I needed a No. 1 first-class trial team to take the matter to trial, and I knew that was Michael and his team at Lynn Pinker Cox & Hurst. I’ve known Michael a long time. I know of his capabilities and he’s one of the most tenacious, effective lawyers in the business.”

Brillhart and Hurst have known each other for 15 years and previously practiced together at Godwin Gruber.

“We knew all these things were happening in an underhanded way, but we needed to develop that evidence through discovery, which we did,” Brillhart said. “I credit a lot of it to Michael and his team and Cecily for all their hard work in the case in developing the evidence appropriately to show at trial to convince the jury that what had been done was wrong.”

A dramatic moment that offset Jostens’ arguments at trial came when Hurst was cross-examining Wiggins. Hurst repeatedly asked Wiggins about others he had put blame on and asked him to confirm his position that he was putting none of the accountability on himself. Hurst said Wiggins’ confession at trial was akin to being caught “with his hand in the cookie jar.”
