Case: David Perlman
David Pearlman recently left his old firm to start his own company. Only a week into his new business, and still working out of his parents’ house, he heard a knock at the door. It was a summons—his old employer was suing him for $100,000 and seeking to shut down his new business. (Perlman Case)
After he gets up from the floor, what should he do? Could he have taken steps to mitigate the risk of a lawsuit when he left his previous job—or is this just a rick of doing business? What do you think? What would you do?
