English files cross-appeal against Miles & Stockbridge

Two days after filing a motion seeking nearly $776,000 in attorneys’ fees, Donald E. English Jr. has filed a cross-appeal against Miles & Stockbridge PC with respect to three claims that were dismissed in his lawsuit against his former firm.

English is seeking to revive claims of fraud, unjust enrichment and conversion, Tonya Baña, one of English’s attorneys, said Thursday. English is also appealing a ruling on his motion to alter or amend judgment, the filing states.

Now a non-equity partner at Jackson Lewis PC in Baltimore, English resigned from Miles & Stockbridge in July 2017 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.

In June, a jury awarded English $231,000, including treble damages. Miles & Stockbridge filed a notice of appeal last week after a Baltimore judge denied post-trial motions filed by the firm seeking to set aside or reduce the verdict.

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