  • 2.1.2017 CLASS ACTION CERTIFIED AGAINST C.R. ENGLAND, INC. TRUCKING COMPANY

    On January 31, 2017, Judge Robert J. Shelby of the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah issued a decision certifying a nationwide class that could exceed 14,708 drivers who allege fraud and other statutory claims against trucking company C.R. England and its related company Horizon Truck Sales and Leasing. The certified class claims are for violations of the Utah Business Opportunity Disclosure Act, the Utah Consumer Sales Practices Act and the Utah Truth in Advertising Act, as well as common law claims for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, unjust enrichment and breach of fiduciary duty for all Independent Contractor lease operators.

    The court's 116 page decision in Roberts, et al. v. C.R. England, Inc., et al., D. Utah Case No. 12-CV-302 granted in substantial part the Plaintiffs' motion for class certification. Judge Shelby certified a nationwide class of C.R. England drivers who meet the following criteria:

         1) signed the Vehicle Leasing Agreement with Horizon,

         2) signed the Independent Contractor Operating Agreement with C.R. England,

         3) during the applicable statute of limitations period, and

         4) drove at least one day as an IC lease operator for C.R. England.

    The class representative plaintiffs, Charles Roberts and Kenneth McKay, both drove for C.R. England in 2009 as independent contractors who leased trucks from Horizon. The proposed class exceeds 14,708 drivers, per Judge Shelby's Memorandum Decision and Order.

  • 4.4.2016 KHK WELCOMES ATTORNEY MICHAEL D. HUITINK

    We are very pleased to announce Michael D. Huitink has joined Kravit Hovel & Krawczyk s.c.

    Previously a shareholder with Godfrey & Kahn’s litigation practice group in their Milwaukee office, Mike is a skilled and experienced trial and appellate attorney who comes to the firm after extensive experience at large firms in Wisconsin and Michigan. His practice focuses primarily on “fair competition” lawsuits involving noncompete agreements, the misappropriation of trade secrets and other confidential information, and related tort and statutory claims between employers and their current or former employees. Mike has successfully prosecuted and defeated motions for emergency injunctive relief, as well as dispositive motions relating to the enforcement of postemployment restrictive covenants.

     

    Mike is recognized as an expert in Wisconsin’s unique restrictive covenant laws, frequently lecturing on the topic at State Bar CLE’s or other educational forums. Mike also has extensive commercial litigation experience, serving as lead counsel in numerous “bet the company” and multimillion dollar disputes in federal and state courts across the country. This includes successfully defending or prosecuting claims arising from breaches of contract and related business torts, commissions and payment disputes, theft and misappropriation of corporate assets, “piercing the corporate veil” and related corporate structure disputes, and shareholder and corporate governance issues. This includes litigating such disputes against foreign corporations, as Mike has utilized his experience with the Hague and New York conventions in cases against corporations from France, Japan, China, and Bermuda.

     

    Most of all, Mike is known as a courtroom specialist who knows how to efficiently and effectively bring a dispute through trial. He has a record of successfully prosecuting or defending high profile and substantial damages disputes before juries in state and federal court, and then successfully protecting those verdicts on appeal.

     

    Mike received his B.A. from Central College of Iowa, and his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center.
