The claim - originally was brought by a competitor company against an employee of a national building materials company. In response, FMG, on behalf of our client, counterclaimed for declaratory judgment, opposed the motion for temporary injunction, and sought discovery on the competitor's damage claims. In the face of this action, the competitor initiated settlement, leading to their dismissal of claims and voluntary end of the litigation.
