Florida's Second District Court of Appeal recently affirmed the award of more than $13 million in judgments against businessman Stanley Tseng and his affiliates, in favor of Hung-Lin Wu, the Wu Trust, and Winner Metals of Florida, LLC. The judgments were obtained last year by Holland & Knight litigation partners Brad Kimbro and Mike Chapman at the conclusion of a two-week business fraud trial in Hillsborough Circuit Court. Guy Spicola, a former partner at Holland & Knight and well-respected trial lawyer and mediator, also represented Wu as the senior member of Wu's trial team.

The three consolidated actions that were tried all related to fraud on the part of Virginia businessman Stanley Tseng, an entrepreneur who started the ""Bamboo Hut"" restaurant chain and numerous other businesses, in connection with the formation of a scrap metal business that operated in the Port of Tampa. Wu alleged, and trial court judge Sam D. Pendino determined, that Tseng defrauded Wu by representing that certain assets of the new business venture cost $2.95 million, when the actual cost was only $500,000. Tseng was found to have covered up the fraud for years and later unilaterally transferred the company's assets to another business that Tseng controlled.

""This was a case about a confidant who lied to our client. Mr. Wu's commitment to bringing the truth to light ultimately led to a fair and just result. We are extremely pleased for Mr. Wu,"" said Brad Kimbro. Mike Chapman added, ""It took hard work and commitment to bring justice in this case. We are delighted that the truth has been uncovered, and Mr. Wu has been vindicated.""

The matters raised by Stanley Tseng on appeal primarily involved entitlement to and calculation of damages. All of these arguments were resolved in favor of Mr. Wu. According to Stacy Blank, the Holland & Knight partner who handled the appeal on behalf of Mr. Wu, ""Mr. Tseng raised numerous issues on appeal. The appellate court rejected those arguments and affirmed the trial court's decision. We are very pleased with the result.
