Reggie Belcher and Michelle Clayton Obtain Summary Judgment on Behalf of Insurer
Reggie Belcher and Michelle Clayton obtain summary judgment on behalf of an insurer. Plaintiff sued six defendants, including Turner Padget’s client, alleging claims for fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, intentional misrepresentation, civil conspiracy, negligent hiring/retention/training, and violation of the Unfair Trade Practices Act. Plaintiff alleged that the insurer was responsible for the alleged conduct of a former manager who purportedly defrauded Plaintiff, causing her to lose her home. Plaintiff sought actual damages in an unspecified amount (likely equal to the value of her home), punitive damages, treble damages, and attorney's fees. After conducting extensive written discovery (and prior to deposing any witnesses), Reggie and Michelle convinced opposing counsel to consent to summary judgment in our client’s favor on all claims.
