Rhema Law Secures California Appeals Victory Against Internet Brands, Inc.

March 10, 2015– Irvine, CA-   Rhema Law Group, P.C. (“Rhema Law”), a boutique intellectual property & business law firm, announced on February 23, 2015 that the California Court of Appeals affirmed its previous jury trial victory, in favor of its client, Greenlight Financial, against Internet Brands, Inc.


“In upholding the jury’s verdict, the Appeals Court provided further validation of Internet Brands’ clear breach of contract involving the “Greenlight” trademark and “Greenlight.com” website. This signals that even large companies like Internet Brands, must honor their promises and perform under the terms of a contract,” said Greenlight Financial’s attorney, Rhema Law partner John D. Tran, who served as lead trial and appellate counsel on the matter.

Joann Pham, former CEO of Greenlight Financial added, “We are very pleased with the outcome and the work done by John Tran, Rosalind Ong and their team at the Rhema Law Group.  Above all, this case was about principles and that Internet Brands had to be held accountable for their actions in not honoring a previous agreement and refusing to acknowledge their wrongful actions when confronted with it.”

In March 2012, Rhema Law filed filed a complaint against Internet Brands, Inc. alleging breach of contract and related unfair competition claims associated to a prior agreement between the parties involving the “Greenlight” trademark and “www.greenlight.com” domain.  Among other things, the complaint alleged that Internet Brands’ modified an agreed upon version of the Greenlight.com website without permission, and intentionally diverted internet leads/sales away from Greenlight Financial and to Internet Brands’ affiliated sites.

The matter was tried to a jury over six days culminating in a jury verdict on April 11, 2013 in the amount of $750,000.00 in favor of Greenlight Financial.  The Superior Court rejected Internet Brands’ request for new trial and granted Greenlight Financial’s request for attorney’s fees, costs and interest, bringing the total award to over $1 Million.  Greenlight expects to also recover its attorneys’ fees and costs on appeal as well.

The Appeal was heard November 17, 2014 before a three-judge panel of the California Court of Appeals for the 4th district.  Internet Brands argued that the judgment should be overturned based upon a variety of theories, including that the “discovery rule” did not apply in the case because Internet Brands’ breach was open to anyone who visited its website and that Greenlight’s delay in bringing the suit was not-reasonable.  The California Appeals court rejected Internet Brands’ arguments and unanimously affirmed the trial court’s judgment.
