JTWT Attorneys Successfully Defend Trial Court's Decision

Johnson Trent attorneys Chris Trent and Ara Hardig successfully defended a trial court’s decision to grant summary judgment on a plaintiff’s claim for tortious interference with employment relations.

On August 2, 2012, in an Opinion issued by Justice Harvey Brown, the First Court of Appeals affirmed the summary judgment granted on behalf of Bridgestone Retail Operations, LLC d/b/a BSRO; Bridgestone Americas, Inc. and Firestone Polymers, LLC by the trial court on the plaintiff’s claims. The Court concluded that the trial court did not err in granting summary judgment because the plaintiff had no evidence of alleged harm. The Court also refused to expand existing law to impose liability on employers based on third-party directives to their employees.
