Monday, March 3, 2014

Congratulations to 2013 alumni M. Paula Briceno, Brittany M. Cambre and Crystal M. Johnson for their UGA Appellate Litigation Clinic work in representing a franchisee in his claim against his franchisor and its former chief executive officer. Johnson argued the case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in front of a panel that included retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor. The Fourth Circuit certified the case to the Virginia Supreme Court, where the clinic partnered with a major Virginia firm. The state's highest court answered both certified questions in the client's favor. The case likely will be remanded to district court for further proceedings.
