 Dysart Taylor is pleased to announce directors Anne E. Baggott and David M. Buffo recently secured a win for a bulk liquid transportation company and its owner and employees.

The team has been defending the company since March 2020 against a lawsuit alleging breach of an employment agreement with non-compete and non-solicitation provisions. The plaintiff filed a motion for a temporary injunction in early 2021, which, if successful, would have required the company to stop operating.

Baggott and Buffo defended their clients during a three-day evidentiary hearing this summer. On November 16, the judge overseeing the case denied the temporary injunction motion, allowing the firm’s client to continue to operate. Among other reasons for the denial, Baggott and Buffo successfully argued the plaintiff failed to establish it would suffer irreparable harm without an injunction.

“As a business owner in a small town, our transportation clients are a significant employer,” Baggott said. “We were thrilled to get this win not only for our clients, but also for their customers, employees and drivers.”
