Lommen Abdo garners a trio of trial victories in early 2017

Lommen Abdo started off 2017 with three great courtroom victories for its clients in Minnesota state and federal courts.

The first was a jury trial verdict in Hennepin County in a long-pending professional liability matter relating to a mechanic’s lien.  Phil Cole, with the assistance of Lauren Nuffort, tried the case after it had returned to the trial court from a lengthy appeal process that ended in the Minnesota Supreme Court.  For more information about this case, read the article written about it by Minnesota Lawyer.  Beth Chapman and Electronic Litigator provided the electronic litigation support for the trial.

Another Hennepin County win came in a court trial of a lengthy commercial dispute tried by Jason Engkjer and Mike Glover.  The matter was tried over several days and the court issued findings of fact, conclusions of law and order for judgment on April 18, 2017.

The third victory came in the Minnesota federal district court in a case where certain union fringe benefit funds were claiming a Minnesota general contractor had shorted workers’ hours and thus also shorted payments to the union funds for fringe benefits.  Lommen Abdo’s client was exonerated and the lawyers dealt a blow to the plaintiff’s expert whose opinions were tossed out under the Daubert analysis. For more information about this matter, read the article about the case written by Keith Broady.   Read the court’s decision.
