Gault and Ritchie Win in U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit

Win Gault and Spencer Ritchie recently won in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, where the Court affirmed the District Court's ruling that awarded our client contractual damages, attorney fees, pre-judgment interest, and post-judgment interest totaling more than $900,000. In January 2019, Win and Spencer obtained a bench trial verdict in favor of our client, an oil and gas company, in a contractual indemnity action pending in the Eastern District of Louisiana. Win and Spencer presented oral argument before the Fifth Circuit in December 2019. The Court issued its opinion in February and designated it for publication.
