This case was a breach of contract; plaintiff was hired by defendant to run their office in Austin. In the agreement it stated that plaintiff would be made partner once he hit his target sales or after five years if sales target was not met. After starting his employment with the firm, the plaintiff was quickly approaching his target sales amount that was in the agreement. Once the defendant determined this they canceled their agreement and shut down the Austin office. Dr. Steward was retained to analyze the plaintiffs alleged economic damages.
