business torts and business litigation Archives

Business litigation alleges fantasy football contract breach

Businesses in Georgia and nationwide are involved increasingly in litigation concerning online marketing and promotional activities. Many business litigation conflicts are over the rights to intellectual property such as copyrights, trade names and other proprietary assets. A recent example of such litigation involves a complaint filed recently in federal court by Fulltime Fantasy Sports, LLC against CBS Interactive, Inc.

Business litigation can test the validity of competitor's claims

In Georgia and throughout the country a business may challenge the advertising of its competitors through the court system and before administrative agencies. In addition to filing business litigation, this may also be done more informally through the National Advertising Division of the Council for Better Business Bureaus. For example, one maker of probiotic supplements sued another maker of those products for making unsupported claims about its products.

Business litigation over data breach claims reinstated by Court

Georgia is home to its share of litigation over data breaches against big retailers and respected organizations. When criminal hackers penetrate the security protections of a company's data banks, class action lawsuits and some individual business litigation actions usually follow. The plaintiffs are customers whose private information has been taken and who are facing potentially dire consequences.

Concert no-shows are naturals for business litigation courts

In Georgia as well as elsewhere, contracts for live concerts tend to run into quite a bit of contention between the parties. When the dispute cannot be mediated or resolved by private negotiations, the dispute will go to court and become another entry into the state's roster of business litigation cases. There are many different reasons for disputes over live entertainment to be commonplace, such as the failure of performers to make the show, the failure of promoters to sell enough tickets, and the failure to pay the entertainer the full amount promised.

Business torts cover a wide range of actions against companies

Business torts filed in Georgia may involve disputes between two companies or in some instances, they may be asserted by consumers against a company. One company may accuse another of interfering with its contractual or business relations with customers, or it may assert various forms of unfair or unscrupulous competition that go beyond contractual issues. In the consumer complaints category, such business torts may include claims that a company falsely advertised its services or products.

Single-vehicle accidents often cause personal injury

When motor vehicle collisions are reported, most people expect to hear of a crash between two or more vehicles. However, many single-vehicle crashes occur in Georgia and across the country on a regular basis. Victims in a recent crash may choose to file personal injury claims after suffering injuries in such a collision.
