Co., No. 09-31016, an action by a law firm against a client for nonpayment of legal fees, the court vacated judgment for plaintiff where a valid compromise was formed through email communications, and the terms of the compromise clearly and explicitly provided for a permanent discount.
As the court wrote: "This appeal arises from a dispute between Mariner Health Care (Mariner) and the Preston Law Firm (the Law Firm) over legal fees. Because a valid compromise was formed through email communications, and because the terms of the compromise clearly and explicitly provided for a permanent discount, we vacate and remand for entry of judgment in favor of Mariner."
