Olson v. Synergistic Technologies and Thomas Cameron

Dec 01, 1998

CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.

Hennepin County District Court, Minnesota, 1998 [628  N.W.2d 142]

 

Synergistic Technologies, a small privately held company, and its president, Thomas Cameron, were engaged in a "no holds barred" palimony/wrongful termination action brought by Cameron's former lover, Olson, who sought $2.2 million in damages.  Richard Morgan was brought in to try the case two months before trial, after another firm has worked up the case.  He successfully argued a summary judgment motion, which eliminated 11 of plaintiff's 13 claims, even though the deadline for dispositive motions had passed.  The trial on plaintiff’s promissory and equitable estoppel claims spanned five weeks, resulting in an award to plaintiff of $60,000, which was thrown out on appeal.
