Description

Mike Ethridge and Suzanne Hogg obtained summary judgment in Charleston County, on behalf of their client in a multi-family construction defect case. Mike and Suzanne successfully argued their client was not liable for misrepresentations that were allegedly made to Plaintiff relating to a converted condominium project under the South Carolina Horizontal Property Act. The Court agreed that their client — a listing agent, uninvolved in the sale transaction of the converted condominium – was entitled to judgment as a matter of law and granted their motion. The Circuit Court subsequently denied Plaintiff’s motion for amendment and reconsideration of the judgment.
