Business Expert Witness On Cisco v. Infra-Comm
Attorneys for Cisco (NSDQ:CSCO) and one of its solution providers on Friday presented closing arguments to the jury in the breech of contract lawsuit between the two, with the solution provider's attorney characterizing Cisco as purposely throwing its partner overboard and destroying its business and Cisco's attorney claiming the vendor is really the victim.
Infra-Comm, a San Juan Capistrano, Calif.-based solution, alleges Cisco breached its Indirect Channel Partner Agreement (ICPA) and the terms of its deal registration program by passing a potential large deal with the Irvine Company, a property development company, toAT&T (NYSE: T). Networking and IP telephony vendor Cisco, in return, is accusing Infra-Comm of harming Cisco's business and misusing its brand name....
Daucher then asked the jury to award Infra-Comm damages of $6,381,446, which he called a very conservative estimate by an expert witness and attorney based on the amount of business Infra-Comm lost as a result of losing its Cisco ICPA and its business with the Irvine Company.
