Motion for Summary Judgment Granted – Abusive Litigation
Pete Werdesheim and Joe Kingma obtained summary judgment in an abusive-litigation action brought against their clients in the Superior Court of DeKalb County. Plaintiff contended that Carlock Copeland’s attorney clients pursued frivolous defenses and counterclaims in an underlying lawsuit that stemmed from the breakup of a technology business, seeking nearly $1,000,000 in damages. In an order entered June 10, 2011, just ten days before a specially set trial, Judge Linda Warren Hunter determined that no triable issue existed as to “malice,” causation, or damages.
