The long-running Boral Windows LLC v. William E. Robinson Jr. came to a close Friday, with the jury in the 162nd Dallas County Civil District Court handing down a decisive defense win.
The case, first filed in 2018, involved non-competition/non-solicitation allegations arising following the 2016 sale of the widely respected window manufacturing company Krestmark by founder William “Billy” Robinson.
Through the work of Donald E. Godwin and his Mission Critical Litigation team, the jury found no liability on the part of Mr. Robinson following the two-week trial presided over by the Hon. Judge Maricela Moore. Boral Windows had sought more than $40 million in compensatory damages, in addition to punitive damages and attorney’s fees.
The trial is believed to be one of, if not the first complex commercial litigation jury trials tried to verdict in-person in Dallas County since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
