Joel Marcus lives in California and happens to be a real estate tycoon who is credited for creating biotech hubs of commercial science lab properties in various regions of the United States. He is founder of Alexandria Real Estate Equities, which has a current market value of approximately $14 billion. Marcus is also currently entangled in a bitter business litigation situation involving his son.

California health insurer navigating business litigation

Nowadays, many health insurance companies get into legal skirmishes with medical providers. Business litigation is often necessary when disagreements arise regarding health plans and costs insurers should pay to belong to a particular network. One of the largest health insurers in California, Anthem Blue Cross, is currently at odds over contract issues with Sutter Health, a situation which is causing many enrollees much stress.

Former business partners now engaged in business litigation

Entrepreneurial partnerships are often risky business. California business owners who take on partners are wise to write out the terms of their agreements in a thorough and well-defined manner. It is also a top priority to make certain that any and all who are signing a partnership contract clearly understand the obligations and responsibilities set therein. If a partner breaches an agreement, business litigation may result.

Workers hired to replace strikers pursuing business litigation

Many hospitality workers in California and across the country have been following a situation that began when thousands of hotel workers, bartenders and others walked off their jobs to protest numerous issues in their contracts. More than 2,000 Marriott hotel employees started a strike that lasted two months. The workers recently agreed to go back to work after their contract was ratified. However, the workers who had been hired by the hotel to replace the strikers have now filed business litigation of their own.

Monster Energy company involved in 2 business litigation cases

Monster Energy drinks are popular across the country. However, the company has been involved in business litigation; one claim recently ended in a victory for the energy drink mogul, while another was filed against the company by a celebrity surfer. The case that just ended was pending in a federal district court in California. Monster was awarded a $5 million jury verdict against Supply Network, LLC for trademark infringement. 

Transit workers' contract issues may prompt business litigation

Many California residents use the public transportation system as a regular means of travel. Transit companies are typically under contract with a particular city. If a business litigation situation arises -- for instance, if a contract dispute occurs -- it may not only directly affect the workers themselves but may also impact the general public that uses the system.

Business litigation: Saks Fifth Avenue sued by Cartier

Saks Fifth Avenue has been around for a long time. Most luxury shoppers in California are familiar with the high-end retailer, whose flagship store is located in the Northeastern part of the country. The business litigation involves a claim made by Cartier, another high-end company known for its jewelry and watches.

Tinder app stockholders file business litigation against owners

Many California readers are familiar with the Tinder mobile app. For those who are not, it is a mobile social app that allows people to connect and chat and is often used as a dating site. Tinder is owned by InterActiveCorp, and its owners were recently named as defendants in business litigation filed by a group of its first stockholders.

Right-of-way dispute may lead to further business litigation

One of the oldest railroad companies in the nation is currently involved in a dispute with another railway company that has plans to install a high-speed system in California. Union Pacific Railroad and California High Speed Rail Authority do not see eye to eye regarding a 100-foot wide section of property to which the railroad company currently has a right-of-way. In fact, it has had the right-of-way since Abraham Lincoln himself granted it in the 1860s. Business litigation may be necessary to resolve this problem.  

Avoid business litigation by protecting trade secrets

Most California business owners understand the importance of trade secrets security. If a design, system, recipe or client list falls into the wrong hands, it can mean ultimate defeat in a competitive environment. While many business leaders understand that they need to protect their trade secrets, just as many are unsure how to do so. Business litigation often results when trade secret problems get out of hand.
