Kiernan Trebach Appellate Win Affirmed by New Jersey Supreme Court
May 28, 2015

In a widely followed defamation case, the New Jersey Supreme Court affirmed the Appellate Division's reversal and remand of a $2.85 million dollar verdict for a new trial on damages. The Supreme Court agreed with the Appellate Division's holding, which substantially followed positions advanced by Kiernan Trebach, that the verdict awarded to a hedge fund should be vacated and a new trial on damages was required due to improper jury instructions on the standard for awarding various types of potential damages and the limited role of "presumed" damages under New Jersey defamation law.  Kiernan Trebach lawyer Alex Gillespie led the defense team.
