Miles & Stockbridge files notice of appeal in breach-of-contract case

Miles & Stockbridge PC is not backing down in a lawsuit filed by a former principal who claimed the firm owed him money.

In June, a Baltimore jury awarded Donald E. English Jr. $231,000, including treble damages. On Wednesday, the largest law firm in the state filed a notice of appeal.

English, now a non-equity partner at Jackson Lewis PC in Baltimore, resigned from Baltimore-based Miles & Stockbridge last July after 13 years with the firm, the last four as equity principal. English claimed after he resigned, Miles & Stockbridge reduced his salary and “clawed back” nearly $60,000 the firm had paid him, according to his lawsuit.

The firm also refused to pay English for his work on the last three days of the job as well as his salary and benefits through the end of the month and any prorated bonuses, according to the lawsuit.

Earlier this month, a Baltimore judge denied post-trial motions filed by Miles & Stockbridge seeking to set aside or reduce the verdict.

The case is Donald E. English, Jr. vs Miles & Stockbridge PC, 24C17004438.
