Bergeson, LLP Obtains Nonsuit In Jury Trial For C2 Microsystems, Inc.
On May 4, 2009, following a two-week jury trial, the Santa Clara County Superior Court granted C2 Microsystems, Inc.’s motion for nonsuit. The case concerned allegations of intentional misrepresentation brought by DVS, Inc. against C2 Microsystems, Inc. and Edmund Sun, the former CEO of both companies. DVS alleged that Mr. Sun made misrepresentations on behalf of C2 Microsystems regarding the value of technology that was transferred from DVS to C2 in 2004, and sought damages in excess of $10 million. The Court found that, as a matter of law, DVS failed to meet its burden of showing that a majority of the DVS Board of Directors relied on any alleged misrepresentations by Mr. Sun. Bergeson, LLP partners Jay Fowler and Mindy M. Morton represented C2 in the action.
