So quick one for you.
In Champion and Alvord v. Sethi, et al. 2023 WL 5751468 (D. Az. 2023) the Court just issued a default judgment in favor of the Plaintiffs totaling over $200k.
Interestingly, however, the Plaintiffs were originally after a lot more. The court only credited evidence of 405 of over 800 messages the Plaintiffs claimed to have received. The Court also refused to treble damages, finding that a $200k award was plenty,
So what could have been an award of over $1MM ended up being a comparatively reasonable judgment of $200k. Still, considering the limited amount of work the two Plaintiffs had to put into this, that’s a pretty big score. No wonder these cases keep pouring in.
We’ll keep an eye on this.
