Michael Murphy Obtains Take Nothing Arbitration Award on Behalf of MBUSA
June 1, 2009
On June 8, 2009, after a lengthy arbitration conducted under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association before judge Honorable A. Reagan Clark, Michael Murphy obtained a complete take-nothing award on behalf of Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) and Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land. In the arbitration proceedings, MBUSA and Mercedes-Benz of Sugar Land faced nearly $600,000 in potential exposure under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DTPA) arising from a number of claims including breach of contract, misrepresentations and breaches of warranty. Notably, Murphy defended the arbitration against three senior attorneys representing the plaintiff, who had previously obtained a verdict for her in excess of $30 mm in an unrelated case.
