Marks Gray Wins a Defense Verdict for the City of Lake City

Marks Gray, P.A. is pleased to announce Attorneys Tyler J. Oldenburg and Meagan L. Logan, successfully defended their client, the City of Lake City, and received a winning defense verdict.

The Plaintiff, America’s CNG, LLC, alleged that the City of Lake City was in breach of a contract that required the City to sell it natural gas for a period of ten years. The Plaintiff argued that the City refused to sell it natural gas or to comply with its obligations under the contract. As a result of the alleged breach, the Plaintiff claimed it had incurred over $12,500,000.00 in damages. Mr. Oldenburg and Ms. Logan defended the case on the grounds that there was not a valid contract (due to the omission of a signed non-compete provision), the Plaintiff failed to perform (or was not able to perform) its obligations under the contract, and that the Plaintiff did not sustain any damages as a result of the City’s conduct. At the conclusion of a nine-day jury trial in Lake City, Florida, the jury returned a defense verdict.

Oldenburg’s practice is focused on litigation, including all aspects of business disputes, business torts, creditor’s rights and collection work, shareholder/partnership disputes, non-compete litigation, bankruptcy, real estate litigation, trade secret litigation, medical malpractice, premises liability, and products liability.
