Joseph Fried mentioned on Twitter recently that he had an unusually busy calendar, with a string of back-to-back trials. But by last weekend that seemed to change. A Saturday tweet said, “Case settled. No trial Monday.”
On Monday morning, that more traditional type of communication, a phone call, revealed it wasn’t just one case that settled last week. It was six, including two on Friday.
“I guess the planets aligned,” said Fried, a partner at Fried Rogers Golderg. “I resolved six cases last week.”
Total value of the six settlements: $20 million. Fried said his partner, Michael Godberg, told him, “You just had an incredible year – in a week.”
