Williams v Wyndham
Jury trials are the exception in timeshare litigation, and the vast majority of whistleblower cases are resolved by confidential settlement. In this case, however, a former Wyndham employee presented evidence to a San Francisco jury that she was terminated after complaining of Wyndham’s systematic fraud on elders. The resulting verdict and punitive damages award withstood Wyndham’s post-trial motion, albeit reduced from $18.6 to $12.8 million.
