We represented Westlake Styrene Corporation in a lawsuit brought by Taita Chemical Co. seeking in excess of $20 million for an alleged breach of contract. The case was tried to a jury in federal court in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The jury determined that Westlake did not owe any money to Taita, and instead, Taita owed $16.3 million plus attorneys’ fees and pre-judgment interest to Westlake. A final judgment in excess of $20 million was entered in Westlake’s favor in 2002. On appeal, the judgment was affirmed in part and reversed in part. Subsequently, Taita paid Westlake a substantial sum to settle Westlake’s attorneys’ fees award.
