A Los Angeles Superior Court jury yesterday awarded nearly $370 million in damages against Guess? Inc. co-founder Georges Marciano for claims of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress by several former employees, attorneys involved in the matter have announced.
Lancaster attorney R. Rex Parris, who represented two of the employees, called the verdict “one of the largest…ever handed down in Los Angeles County,” in a release.
According to the Bloomberg News Agency: "The jury award is the fourth-largest in the U.S. so far in 2009." Congratulations to Rex Parris, David C. Wheeler, and Alex Wheeler.
