John Greer and Kim Hult win $3.1 million arbitration award in a breach of contract case

In July 2004, following a three-day arbitration hearing handled by John Greer and Kim Hult, a Colorado arbitrator awarded the firm's client, a nonprofit organization involved in the continuing medical education field, $3.1 million in damages in a breach of contract case against a New York based publishing company.   In issuing his ruling, the arbitrator adopted the legal positions advocated by Hutchinson Black and Cook, rejected the counterclaim asserted by the defendant, and awarded Hutchinson Black and Cook's client all of the compensatory damages it requested as well as its attorney's fees and litigation costs.
