WCS attorneys Paul Evelius and Jason Potter were recently featured by The Daily Record for their successful representation of a former union treasurer, William Lovelace, who had sued his union and its president for defamation. After a Baltimore City jury awarded Mr. Lovelace $425,000 in damages, the union and its president appealed. On February 4, 2015, the Court of Appeals affirmed the jury’s verdict, holding that a union member is not required to exhaust the union’s internal procedures before seeking relief if those procedures do not award the member complete relief.
