Robinson Curley prevailed in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, successfully defending a $413 million judgment obtained for our clients, victims of a complex RICO scheme whose interests in a valuable close corporation were stolen by the company's management and their associates. Writing for a unanimous panel, Judge Joel Flaum found that the defendants' "drumbeat of discovery abuse" -- including concealing evidence, destroying evidence, fabricating documents, and avoiding a deposition -- amply justified the District Court's entry of a default judgment sanction against them. The Seventh Circuit also affirmed the District Court's adoption of Robinson Curley's expert-supported damages calculation.
