Mulholland wins verdict against winters & yonker
Tampa - - personal injury lawyer richard mulholland has won damages that could add up to about $3 - million from winters & yonker, a firm he said hacked into his computer and copied files to take business from him.

William winters and marc yonker worked for mulholland until 2001. So did a legal assistant mulholland said gained remote access to the computer on behalf of winters & yonker. Mulholland did not sue the legal assistant, also a former employee, but sued the two lawyers in hillsborough circuit court.

Late monday, after a weeklong trial, a jury awarded damages of about $189, 000 against yonker and about $748, 500 against winters. But florida law requires a judge to triple the jury award when attorneys are found to have violated a civil theft statute.

Circuit judge richard nielsen has not entered a final order.

In a brief telephone interview wednesday, yonker said he has filed motions for a mistrial as well as a new trial, and if those fail, he plans to appeal. He declined to comment about the case until a judge rules on the motions.
