After a recent four-day bench trial, Buchalter convinced Judge Michael J. Convey to deny a permanent civil harassment restraining order against its client, a successful Orange County real estate developer. The petitioner, a serial litigant, attempted to destroy our client’s reputation by making serious and false allegations of sexual harassment, assault, stalking, witness tampering, and invasion of privacy. Attempting to prove her claims, Petitioner called 14 witnesses to testify, none of whom had been deposed. Buchalter’s team was led by Shareholder Eric Kennedy and Attorneys Gemma Karapetyan and Ashley Milnes.
