Fall 2017

Phillip Byron Jones has recently been successfully involved in commercial litigation pending in Federal Court in New York, in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, in Manhattan. In the fall of 2016, he successfully defeated the opposition’s attempt to obtain an extensive injunction, which sought to prohibit his client from certain business transactions. In the fall of 2017, he also obtained for his client a ruling from the same Court, dismissing the plaintiff’s largest claims, which included a claim for the recovery of a portion of approximately $11 Million in damages the plaintiff alleged to have incurred. In connection with that ruling, Mr. Jones also obtained a favorable ruling from the Court as to the merits of his client’s counter-claim, wherein it alleged that its opponent misappropriated its trade name and trademark, in violation of various statutes.
