Attorneys for SoCo nightclub impresario Regas Christou and Beta owner and Beatport co-founder Brad Roulier each made their closing arguments this morning in the anti-trust lawsuit the former filed against the latter in December, 2010. Closing arguments wrapped just before lunch, and after three weeks of hearing testimony, the jury convened for deliberation. Several hours later, they reached a verdict. The jury, comprising three men and four women, came back with a ruling in favor of Roulier, and thus no damages were awarded. We'll have much more on the case in the next few days.
