TITAN ASSET MANAGEMENT DRAGGED INTO MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE LAW SUIT BY ITS OWN ATTORNEYS JAMES WEBB AND MITRANI, RYNOR, ADAMSKY & TOLAND

​ 

Miami, Florida – Following a recent arbitration conference before the Honorable Jerald Bagley (Ret.), involving a dispute between J.B. Harris and Titan Asset Management, Harris, upon the recommendation of Titan’s own attorney James Webb, sued Titan for hijacking a multi-million dollar confidential settlement agreement with tobacco giants R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. and Philip Morris USA Inc., by adding Titan to an existing $75 million tortious interference, state court suit against Titan’s lawyers James Webb and his partners, Mitrani, Rynor, Adamsky & Toland.

Catching Titan completely off guard, Harris’s lawsuit against Webb’s client has created a stir in the South Florida legal community and beyond. The case revolves around a multi-million dollar confidential settlement agreement Harris reached with tobacco giants R.J. Reynolds and Philip Morris on behalf of scores of survivors, whose loved ones became sick and died from their addiction to nicotine contained in  cigarettes, before the government forced the cigarette industry to place warning labels on its cigarette packages.

Known for his tenacity and commitment to justice, Harris alleges that Webb, his partners and now Titan tortiously interfered with this settlement by sending a baseless lien letter to the tobacco companies, thereby seeking in effect to steal food from the mouths of innocent widows and orphans by derailing the distribution of the settlement proceeds to Harris’s clients.

Harris’s determination to see this through is evident in the high-stakes nature of the $75 million lawsuit he has filed.

The lawsuit not only highlights the scale of the potential settlement it also sheds light on the complex dynamics of high stakes legal negotiations. Harris has dedicated years of his professional career to representing the families of deceased smokers in Florida. However, the alleged interference by Webb, his partners and Titan has thrown a wrench into the process, leading to this legal battle.

Despite the challenges, Harris remains focused on his clients’ best interests. He understands the importance of fighting for justice and ensuring that those affected by the harmful consequences of smoking not only have their voices heard but will receive compensation as well. Harris’s experience and expertise in handling high-profile cases make him a formidable opponent for Webb, Mitrani Rynor and Titan.

As the lawsuit progresses, the legal community eagerly awaits the outcome, recognizing the potential implications it may have on future settlements with tobacco companies. Harris’s dedication to seeking justice serves as a reminder of the importance of holding corporations accountable for their actions and ensuring that victims receive the compensation they deserve.

In the face of adversity, J.B. Harris remains resolute, committed to fighting for the rights of his clients and pursuing justice against the powerful tobacco industry. The outcome of this lawsuit will undoubtedly shape the landscape of tobacco litigation and set a precedent for future cases.
