In July 2012, Mr. Mavrick successfully represented a corporation in a jury trial in federal court in Miami, Florida. The corporation was being sued for alleged overtime wages under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Mr. Mavrick and his opposing counsel made opening statements, and then four witnesses testified on behalf of the Plaintiff. At the close of the Plaintiff’s evidence, Mr. Mavrick made a motion that his client should be deemed to prevail in the case because the evidence showed that the Defendant corporation had no liability in the case based on its legal defense. On the third day of the trial, the Court agreed with the merits of the motion, and dismissed the case against Mr. Mavrick’s client and entered judgment in favor of Mr. Mavrick’s client.
Peter T. Mavrick’s client was recently victorious in a one-day arbitration in Clewiston, Florida. Mr. Mavrick and his opposing counsel each made opening statements to the arbitrator with an overview of what the evidence would show in their respective cases. Six witnesses testified. After the arbtration, the parties submitted written briefs addressing the evidence and legal issues. In June 2012, the arbitrator issued a written decision stating that Mr. Mavrick’s client prevailed on all material issues.
