Following a two-day bench trial in late January on a breach of franchise agreement claim, Buchalter Litigation Shareholder, Glenn Hotchkiss, received the trial court’s ruling awarding the client franchisee lost profit damages in the amount of $940,395, which was every dollar of damages sought under one of two alternative damages models.  The damages award was three times the defendant franchisor’s best and final settlement offer made on the day before trial.  The trial court also substantially adopted Glenn’s findings of fact and conclusions of law in its ruling.
