LEE POOLE (Charlotte) and MELODY JOLLY (Wilmington) briefed, and MS. JOLLY argued, before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit on behalf of a law firm in a purported class action lawsuit seeking over $11 million in damages.  The action was appealed by the putative class representatives after MR. POOLE and MS. JOLLY successfully obtained dismissal as a matter of law at the United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
