Marist v. Brady: Jury Find in Favor of Marist, But Awards no Damages

A verdict was handed down in the case of Marist v. Brady yesterday.  The jury found that Marist’s former basketball coach, Matt Brady, breached his contract when he left Marist to coach at James Madison University (JMU), however the jury awarded no damages.

According to Sean McCann of the Poughkeepsie Journal, Marist claimed the following damages through their expert James Markham, an economist from Brandeis University:

…Brady’s alleged breach caused Marist $420,247 in damages stemming from lost ticket sales ($83,498), the loss of that 2008-09 recruiting class ($188,899) and the cost of hiring new assistant coaches ($147,850).

Nevertheless, the jury decided that Marist was not damages by Brady’s breach.  Marist plans no appeal. 

Stay tuned for my analysis of the verdict.
