The Law Office of Ilona Antonyan: Jury Awards $3.2 Million in Breach of Contract & Trade Libel Case

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - March 5, 2009) - Attorneys from The Law Office of Ilona Antonyan, located in downtown San Diego, successfully represented Avalon RF, Inc. in their two-year long breach of contract and trade libel case against WiFi Wireless, Inc., an Oregon Corporation. The sixteen day long trial ended February 10, 2009 when a jury in the San Diego Superior Court found WiFi Wireless, Inc., a publicly traded corporation, liable on three separate causes of action.

At issue was whether or not WiFi Wireless, Inc., not only breached their contract to buyout Avalon RF, but whether WiFi Wireless breached its duty of good faith and fair dealing. The jury also decided that press releases issued by publicly traded WiFi Wireless, Inc. amounted to Trade Libel.

The jury deliberated for four days before returning a verdict on all counts in favor of Avalon RF, Inc., awarding $3.2 million dollars in general damages in addition to finding that punitive damages were warranted.

Based out of El Cajon, California, Avalon RF, Inc., designs state of the art wireless RF technology for applications by the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Military and the motion picture industry.

"This was definitely a long, complicated, and extremely technical dispute, however it was critical to advocate for Avalon in this matter and to believe in our case," said Ilona Antonyan, the lead counsel at trial and founder of The Law Office of Ilona Antonyan. "Avalon RF is a small locally owned company in El Cajon, California which never wavered or lost faith in their position. Now after having their day in Court, the good people of Avalon RF can get back to doing what they do best, developing wireless technology."
