On the eve of what was expected to be a 10-day trial on claims for breach of contract and quantum meruit allegedly worth over $6 million, Los Angeles partner Chris Heck won a motion for judgment on the pleadings for the defendant.  The motion, which was based on res judicata, collateral estoppel and statute of limitations, completely disposed of what was likely the last phase of a hotly-contested corporate dissolution proceeding that has lasted nearly 5 years.  Mr. Heck, at the head of a team of WRSSR lawyers and local counsel, had already tried an earlier phase and achieved a favorable settlement pending the final decision.
