Careful What You Say
We represented a commercial real estate developer/landlord in litigation against a former tenant. During the defendants’ depositions, we elicited material admissions that were fatal to their counterclaims against our client. Then, we successfully moved in limine to prevent the defendants from presenting at trial any affirmative defenses or third-party witnesses. As a result of those efforts, the defendants agreed to the entry of a stipulated judgment in the full amount of our client’s claim, plus attorneys’ fees.
