Paron Capital Mgmt, LLC, et al. v. CrombieAnnotate this Case
This action involved claims by plaintiffs (Paron and, together with McConnon and Lyons) against defendant. McConnon, Lyons, and defendant co-founded Paron to manage client accounts using a software-based futures trading strategy defendant had developed. Plaintiffs accused defendant of fabricating records and making other false statements concerning the trade software, fraudulently inducing McConnon and Lyons to form Paron, and breaching fiduciary duties to Paron. This memorandum opinion addressed several outstanding procedural issues raised after trial concerning the post-trial briefing and the exhibits to be considered as part of the record. The court overruled in part and sustained in part Crombie's various objections to a number of plaintiffs' trial exhibits; denied Crombie's motion to reopen the record and admit additional evidence; denied Crombie's request that the court disregard plaintiffs' post-trial brief and award sanctions against them; denied Crombie's recent motion for involuntary dismissal; and considered the matter fully submitted and ripe for a final determination on the merits.
