Weitz Morgan Succeeds in Vacating Arbitration Award

Weitz Morgan is pleased to announce that its litigation practice recently obtained a favorable ruling to vacate an arbitration award. The case involved a dispute over a commercial contract and whether the liquidated damages were a penalty. Attorney Mark A. Weitz, a 30+ year litigator and head of the firm’s trial practice, along with Chris Franz of Peralez Franz as co-counsel, successfully argued that the award was unfair due to a failure on the part of the arbitrator to allow basic discovery for the defendant. The firm is pleased to have secured yet another victory for this long-time client.
