Have You Been SUED & Stuck w/ a TRO Against Your Amazon Account?
I want you to think about the biggest distribution, the biggest payout you ever got at one time as an Amazon seller. And the reason why I want you to think about something really great is because I’m going to talk to you about how to handle things that are sometimes really bad, when you have to litigate, when you have to go to court.
Many of you don’t know this, but before I pivoted solely into Amazon, I was a hardcore trial lawyer. All I did year after year is try cases, personal injury cases, medical malpractice cases, employment cases, and I loved it. I absolutely adored being in the courtroom. I loved representing the victims against these giant corporations, these giant insurance companies, huge hospital organizations, huge corporations. I loved it.
So now that we solely focus on Amazon sellers, we have an entire litigation team that I am in charge of and I’m back in the fight and our litigation team focuses really on three different types of matters:
The first matter is when you have received a cease and desist notification or one of these ridiculously threatening letters from the VORYS Law Firm and they’re telling you, you can’t sell a product, you’re violating IP rights, somehow you’re outside the first sale doctrine, whatever it is, me and my litigation team handle these matters for you.
The second type of matter is when you have been sued and you are subject to a temporary restraining order. Now, when this happens, the first thing we do is get an answer out the door right away to make sure with that there’s no default taken against you because if you wait too long and you end up in default, the tables turn and now you have to show an excuse for your delay. You have to show you can win the case on the merits. Before that default is taken, the entire burden of proof rests upon whoever sued you. So in those cases where your account has been frozen, your assets are frozen because of a temporary restraining order, we help literally hundreds and hundreds of sellers every year who are in exactly your position.
The third type of case, what we call full blown litigation, is when you have been sued and you’re going to fight like heck, or someone has made a false counterfeit complaint against you or otherwise caused harm to your business and you’re not taking it lying down anymore. You’re going to sue them for the amount of money you have lost. This also occurs if you own a brand and you need to get dozens or hundreds of other sellers who are infringing upon your intellectual property rights. If it’s a whole bunch of sellers stealing your sales, litigation may be a great path for you.
So these are the three types of cases that we handle for Amazon sellers.
