A federal judge in Pennsylvania sided with Kang Haggerty on former clients’ counterclaim of breach of fiduciary duty, but allowed breach-of-contract claims from both sides to proceed.

In a March 29 opinion, U.S. District Judge John R. Padova of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania granted Kang Haggerty’s motion for summary judgment with regard to its former clients’ counterclaim that the firm breached its fiduciary duty.
