Court of Appeals Affirms Dismissal of Developer’s Claims

November 16, 2012

Developer’s claims arose from a failed multi-million dollar sale. The Court of Appeals decision, dated November 16, 2012, affirmed that the alleged tortious interference was instead protected speech. The court also held that a confidentiality agreement plaintiffs sought to rely on could not be enforced by third parties. In addition, the court held that the statements made were privileged.

The plaintiff LLC had as investors some politically powerful local residents who won a verdict of 1.8 million dollars on the same facts against the City of Suwanee. Bill Jones and Joe Kingma developed the legal theories, and drafted and argued the winning motion. This case may be appealed to the Supreme Court, so stay tuned for further developments.
