Zohar prevails with jury in $105 Million real estate dispute

In a hard-fought battle against one of Los Angeles’ largest law firms, a three week jury trial over $105 Million in real estate ended with a verdict in favor of Zohar Law Firm clients, Tal Hassid, Avraham Hassid, Alona Hassid, and ETO Doors Corporation.

The gist of the case centered on claims by the Plaintiff that he was a 25% business partner with the Hassids and was entitled to 25% of their vast business and real estate holdings. The jury disagreed and awarded him nothing. Zohar counter-sued the Plaintiff and obtained a jury verdict finding that Plaintiff had committed fraud and must therefore pay compensatory and punitive damages, as well as attorneys’ fees.
