Client Highlight: Enbridge
S&C achieved a victory for Enbridge after a five-week jury trial in Dallas.
Billions at stake on a petition brought in Texas State Court by a significant competitor. What to do?
When faced with this issue, Enbridge selected S&C. That choice proved to be correct when S&C mounted a vigorous defense and achieved a complete and unanimous victory for Enbridge after a five-week jury trial in Dallas.
Enbridge placed its confidence in Sullivan & Cromwell, understanding that S&C’s creativity in its litigation approach and its extensive experience in working with the oil and gas industry would give them an edge, even litigating in Texas State Court.
When the jury came back, Enbridge’s confidence in Sullivan & Cromwell paid off. Enbridge achieved a unanimous jury verdict, exonerating it from any liability. By contrast, Enbridge’s co-defendant was ordered to pay more than $500 million in the largest civil judgment ever awarded by a Dallas state court judge.
