Court Holds Part of Settlement Is Non-Taxable

A case we brought for a partner against his former law firm was settled.  The law firm claimed that all of the settlement was taxable to the former partner and that the court had no right to make an allocation.  The court granted our motion to allocate a portion of the settlement to non-taxable proceeds.  Sobol v. Katz & Manka Ltd., Court File No. 27-CV-14-13876 (Dist. Ct. Henn. Co.)
