Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Suit for breach of oral contract to pay for expert's expedited services
Analysis Group, Inc. v. Cent. Florida Inv., Inc., 09-2630, concerned a challenge to the district court's judgment in favor of the plaintiff, in plaintiff's breach of oral contract claim against a defendant for failure to pay for an expert's expedited services in an underlying litigation.
In affirming, the court held that the jury instructions do not entitle defendant to judgment as a matter of law or a new trial. The court also held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in awarding prejudgment interest as the requirements of the Massachusetts prejudgment interest statute have been satisfied. Lastly, the court held that the plaintiff's motion for sanctions on the basis that defendant's appeal is groundless and intentionally misleading is denied as, although defendant's appeal fails, it was neither frivolous nor an unreasonable or vexatious multiplication of proceedings.
