EI Vice President Laura Malowane assists Baby Center, LLC in successful arbitration outcome for breach of contract case.

Laura Malowane, Vice President of Economists Incorporated, assisted Baby Center in a claim against them by GSI Commerce Solutions.  The matter involved allegations against the internet retailer that it breached its order fulfillment contract with GSI by closing its online store and entering into a new agreement with an alternative website. For the JAMS arbitration hearing of the matter, Dr. Malowane assisted Baby Center in identifying the erroneous calculations and faulty assumptions in the plaintiff’s expert’s damages report.  In his decision the arbitrator cited many of these errors as reasons for his conclusion that the plaintiff’s expert’s damage analysis was “unworthy of any reliance” and for his final award of damages in the amount of $1.
