Daniel Coker Prevails in Breach of Contract Dispute Over Covid-19 Pandemic Hand-Sanitizer Packaging

Daniel Coker defense attorney J. Miles Forks obtained a summary judgment in favor of the firm’s client, a Texas-based hand-sanitizer manufacturer in a breach of contract dispute filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi, Northern Division. The Plaintiffs hoped to capitalize on the perceived panic over shortages of hand-sanitizer during the Covid-19 pandemic. Daniel Coker’s client was engaged by the Plaintiffs to provide bottling and packaging services for the Plaintiffs’ premixed solution. Plaintiffs sought seven-figure damages against Daniel Coker’s client for alleged product contamination, untimely delivery, and warranty breaches. Miles successfully defended those breach-of-contract and bad-faith allegations resulting in a summary judgment order finding Plaintiffs failed to show any admissible evidence supporting their claims.
