Shareholder Tyler J. Oldenburg

Marks Gray, P.A. is pleased to announce attorney Tyler J. Oldenburg, successfully defended his client, the City of Lake City, and received a winning defense verdict.

The Plaintiff, America’s CNG, LLC, alleges the City of Lake City was in breach of a contract that required the City to sell its natural gas for a period of ten years. The Plaintiff argued that the City refused to sell it natural gas or to comply with its obligations under the contract. As a result of the alleged breach, the Plaintiff claimed it had incurred over $12,500,000.00 in damages. Mr. Oldenburg defended the case on the grounds that there was not a valid contract (due to the omission of a signed non-compete provision), the Plaintiff failed to perform (or was not able to perform) its obligations under the contract, and that the Plaintiff did not sustain any damages as a result of the City’s conduct. At the conclusion of a nine-day jury trial in Lake City, Florida, the jury returned a defense verdict.  

Tyler J. Oldenburg’s practice focuses on litigation, including all aspects of business disputes, business torts, creditor’s rights and collection work, shareholder/partnership disputes, non-compete litigation, bankruptcy, real estate litigation, trade secret litigation, medical malpractice, premises liability, and products liability. Mr. Oldenburg also handles a variety of transactional matters, including real estate transactions, business organization, acquisitions and mergers, leases, employment agreements, and shareholder agreements.
