Carl M. Jacobson et al. v. Mail Boxes Etc. UNITED STATES. Inc. and Lawrence Ovian (Middlesex County Superior Court, Massachusetts, Civil Action #92-2746, filed April 1992.) In this case, the plaintiff franchisees asserted a breach of contract, misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty and claimed damages of more than $US 250,000. Our predecessor responded by rejecting all charges and filing counter-complaints. In February 1995, the Court of Justice dismissed all actions for fraud, the trust action and one contractual remedy.
The jury ruled in favor of our predecessor on the remaining infringement claims, but committed to Graham`s claim of unfair business practices and awarded $167,000 in U.S. damages, plus about $70,000 in attorneys` fees. The Court of Appeals upheld the court`s ruling on July 8, 1997, and the Massachusetts Supreme Court dismissed our predecessor`s application for review of appeal. On August 18, 1997, our predecessor agreed with all the complainants on the sum of $415,000.
