Mike Egan and Derrick Bingham obtain big win for client

Posted December 1, 2016 in News

The federal jury verdict of $8.1 million, obtained earlier this year by Mike Egan and Derrick Bingham, was recently sustained. Motions for new trial or judgment notwithstanding the verdict were denied by Judge Pannell, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, in favor of OGEJS's client, a medical school professor and inventor from California. The case involved intellectual property rights on medical devices developed by the professor.

Mr. Egan also continues working with associate Ian Hall on an asset acquisition by a manufacturing client for which he has long served as general counsel. The effort involves close review of the effect of a “sale order” under Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code to be certain the assets pass with no liabilities attached. The seller of the assets is located in San Diego, California.

Of historic interest, Mr. Egan's client Asselin, Inc., manufacturer of hand crafted windows and doors, owned by a French parent corporation, was recently honored in Atlanta by the French American Chamber of Commerce for its role in building a replica of the French sailing ship, Hermione. It was aboard the Hermione that the Marquis de Lafayette sailed to America in March 1780. The Hermione then served the American cause for the balance of the American Revolution.
