"Kyle's customers received a letter from Farmers informing them that Kyle had been terminated from Farmers and their insurance policies were being assigned to a new agent. Under the agreements, Kyle was prohibited from even calling his customers to explain the reason for his termination. Kyle's customers were left with the impression that Kyle had done something wrong," said J. Brian Duncan, Jr., of Mobile's Cunningham Bounds, LLC who tried the case with his partner, Lucy E. Tufts. "In this case, the evidence that Farmers intentionally made false statements to Kyle to induce him into becoming a Farmers agent was overwhelming. After hearing all the evidence, a jury of twelve intelligent, hardworking, and honest citizens made the unanimous decision to hold Farmers accountable for its false representations and all the harm that was caused to Kyle as a result," Duncan concluded.The law firm of Cunningham Bounds, LLC, founded in 1958, is based in Mobile, Alabama and has been representing plaintiffs for over 50 years. Today the firm continues its tradition of representing victims in cases involving catastrophic personal injury, industrial accidents, defective products, truck and automobile accidents, and medical malpractice. The firm also has expertise in business litigation, complex litigation, and national and state class action litigation involving defective products and consumer fraud.
