Fourth Circuit Affirms Judgment for RCD Client on Fraud Claim
On May 23, 2016, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit affirmed a judgment obtained by Rayburn Cooper & Durham, P.A. for client RDLG, LLC (view a copy of the Fourth Circuit opinion here). RCD’s client was granted a default judgment on a fraud claim as a sanction against Fred M. Leonard, Jr. by the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. A jury trial was later held on the issue of damages, and RCD was awarded a $500,580.36 judgment for its client by the jury. The Fourth Circuit affirmed both the grant of the default judgment as a sanction and the jury’s damages award. RDLG, LLC was represented by Ross Fulton and Ben Shook.
