  • Representative Matters of Kimberly C. Lau

    • On March 25, 2022, Ms. Lau first-chaired a week-long jury trial in South Caroling and obtained a unanimous jury verdict on plaintiff’s defamation and civil conspiracy claims against defendants resulting in an award of $5.3mm. This was one of the largest verdicts in the area for such causes of action involving a private individual plaintiff. Ms. Lau’s trial win came after nearly five years of litigation, which included depositions of 23 witnesses, approximately 10,000 pages of document discovery, 14 discovery motions, a writ to the Supreme Court of South Carolina that ended the state’s longstanding practice of allowing special referees decide discovery motions who were without jurisdiction to do so, and a successful outcome on all seven motions in limine filed before trial.
