Synergetics, Inc. v. Hurst et al.

In June of 2007, our lawyers conducted a four-day bench trial over a motion to set aside a multi-million judgment and for sanctions. The motion was based on alleged witness tampering that occurred in the prior trial. The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri ordered the plaintiff to pay our client $1.17 million as a sanction for improper conduct in the prior trial.
