King & Spalding has won a series of rulings in lawsuits arising out of its controversial representation of Chinese telecommunications company ZTE Corp. But the firm still faces a potential trial in a wrongful termination suit brought by a former firm associate.
Southern District of New York Judge Valerie Caproni, in a ruling this month, said King & Spalding chairman Robert Hays would not have to sit for a deposition in the wrongful termination lawsuit brought by the former associate, David Joffe. Meanwhile, a state court judge has dismissed a separate lawsuit brought by the firm’s former adversary, who cited Joffe’s suit in claiming the firm engaged in “deceit and misconduct.”
