Coushatta Tribe Prevails in Appeal of Multi-Million Dollar Contract Dispute Judgment

Here is the opinion in Meyer & Assoc. v. Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana (La. Ct. App.):

14-1109opi

An excerpt:

Based on the foregoing, we reverse the grant of summary judgment to Meyer & Associates, Inc. on the issue of fraud and misrepresentation, finding that Meyer & Associates, Inc. failed to prove that no genuine issues of material fact remain on these issues; we reverse the grant of summary  judgment to Meyer & Associates, Inc. on the issue of breach of fiduciary duties because this issue was not properly before the trial court; and we reverse the grant of summary judgment to Meyer & Associates, Inc. on the issue of breach of contract, finding that genuine issues of material fact still remain on this issue. Based on these reversals, we vacate the March 3, 2014 judgment awarding Meyer & Associates, Inc. $10,603,250.00 in damages and $395,000.00 in reimbursable expenses; and vacate the June 23, 2014 judgment awarding Meyer & Associates, Inc. $5,585,573.00 in attorney fees and $57,662.34 in court costs; and remand the matter to the trial court for further proceedings. Costs of this appeal are assessed to Meyer & Associates, Inc.
