Significant Results


Gary Carroll v. TheStreet.com, et al. (Fifteenth Judicial Circuit/U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida, West Palm Beach, Fla.) (2008 – 2014).

Mr. Trauth represented TheStreet.com – a publicly traded financial news and financial literacy website co-founded by CNBC’s Jim Cramer – in a high stakes defamation suit brought by an owner of local surgery centers. The hotly contested suit began in Florida Circuit Court before making its way to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida after a hedge fund with more than $12 billion dollars in assets under management was added as a defendant. The sophistication of the parties and potential financial and reputational exposure made for a “bet the company” type urgency in the litigation. Even Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal weighed in to uphold the journalist’s privilege in Case No. 4D09-2649. Despite the intensity of the litigation, Mr. Trauth was able to resolve the matter favorably on behalf of TheStreet.com without a trial.
