The United States Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals recently affirmed judgment in Consult America, Inc. et al. v. Rankin et al. in favor of Capell & Howard’s client in a civil litigation case based on the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”). The plaintiffs claimed over 200 acts of mail and wire fraud, money laundering and state law fraud in their lawsuit filed in the Middle District of Alabama, seeking over $4.5 million in damages. After losing on a motion to dismiss and a post-judgment motion, the plaintiffs unsuccessfully appealed to the Eleventh Circuit. Jimmy Walter, Chris Weller and Will Cunningham served as counsel to the client.
