Second Appeal Results in Reversal of Breach of Contract Judgment Against Levinger PC Clients
June 25, 2014 in Case Summaries
After two appeals to the Dallas Court of Appeals, Levinger PC clients Hampden Corporation and Fantasy Diamond Corporation won the complete reversal of a $750,000 judgment against them for the alleged breach of a commission agreement with one of their sales representatives. The court of appeals held that the commission agreement was modified by an enforceable agreement to pay the sales representative on a monthly retainer basis, and that Hampden and Fantasy Diamond were entitled to terminate the modified agreement at any time. The opinion ended nearly seven years of litigation between the parties. Hampden Corp. v. Remark, Inc., No. 05‑13‑00529‑CV, 2014 WL 2921655 (Tex. App. ‑‑ Dallas June 25, 2014, pet. denied).
