Bobby Sullivan and Tyler Abrahams obtain $1.1M judgment and net recovery of $1.55M for client
Bobby Sullivan and Tyler Abrahams prevailed following a three day bench trial and several evidentiary hearings involving disputed commercial leases for construction equipment. The firm’s client had alleged the defendant/lessor breached its contract and committed fraud by failing to pay rents and other charges owed under the lease, while the defendant/lessor contended its non-payment was consistent with the parties’ course of dealing and that payment had been waived. The Court awarded the firm’s client in excess of $1.1 million, inclusive of damages, interest, attorneys’ fees and costs. This award is in addition to $450,000 the firm recovered for the client pre-trial, and inclusive of a $20,000 discovery sanction Tyler secured in the client’s favor.
