In a world where manufacturers, entrepreneurs and Fortune 500 companies increasingly vie for shrinking sales and investment dollars in the same, very public marketplace, the impact of a major lawsuit and the subsequent media fallout can be devastating. Not only because of the time, money and human capital involved, but because a single unfavorable verdict can shape current perception as well as future sales, causing the executives of these companies to come under increasing scrutiny.
