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, â€śCase settled. No trial Monday.â€ť
On Monday morning, that more traditional type of communication, a phone call, revealed it wasnâ€™t just one case that settled last week. It was six, including two on Friday.
â€śI guess the planets aligned,â€ť said Fried, a partner at Fried Rogers Golderg. â€śI resolved six cases last week.â€ť
Total value of the six settlements: $20 million. Fried said his partner, Michael Godberg, told him, â€śYou just had an incredible year â€“ in a week.â€ť
