Court again rules in favour of Cellchem International

In his ruling, the judge concluded that the preponderance of the evidence clearly supported the verdict and that he would not grant the Defendant's motion for a new trial on any of the grounds raised by the Defendants. The judge also denied the Defendants' motion to find Plaintiff Cellchem in contempt for informing the industry of the facts of the case.

Cellchem's attorney, Jonathan Crumly of Maner Crumly Chambliss LLP argued during the hearing that Mr. and Mrs. Lyman lied repeatedly during the trial giving the jury ample legal grounds to disregard all of their testimony. The jury's verdict was based on the overwhelming evidence against the Defendants and the Lymans' utter disregard for the truth.

Dennis Spicher, Vice President of Cellchem said, "We are pleased the judge was not swayed by the Defendants' tactics and reaffirmed the jury decision. Also, in denying the Defendants' motion for contempt the judge sent a message that Cellchem was within its rights to inform the polyurethane industry of the truthful ramifications of Shekoy's actions. Obviously, the Defendants would prefer the industry not know the particulars of their actions.”

Steven Gabelman, Vice President added, "Anyone who attended the trial or read the public transcript would come to the same conclusion as the jury, that the verdict was just and fair. Shekoy, Tritec and the Lymans conspired many months to destroy Cellchem. They put a systematic plan together and executed it.”

The Defendants have 30 days to appeal the final verdict to the Georgia Court of Appeals.
