Represented a health care related company in litigation with a former marketing and sales consultant, who was also a minority shareholder. The terminated employee refused to stop their marketing efforts, developed web sites and continued to use the company's trademark and logo. The company sued for trademark infringement and for violation of the federal Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act. The consultant counterclaimed for commissions and for breach of contract. The firm discovered that the consultant had intercepted an unknown number of e-mails between the company and its outside counsel, and moved for sanctions. The district court struck the consultant's answer and counterclaim and entered a default judgment. The district court also awarded the company all of its attorneys' fees. The Eleventh Circuit affirmed the ruling in a published opinion.
