Victory in Complex Fraud Action

Giuseppe Franzella, Russell Penzer, Christina Rosas and Lisa Azzato of the Firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group successfully represented a computer and information technology service provider before the Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen County in dismissing a fraud case commenced by a well-known newspaper company. Giuseppe Franzella orally argued on behalf of the Firm’s client in support of the motion for summary judgment. In a decision that attracted media attention, the Superior Court, granting summary judgment in the Firm’s client’s favor, held that: “At its core, this case is Plaintiff’s retrospective analysis of its business relationship with the Defendants. [Plaintiff] now ‘feels’ that it engaged in some poor business transactions. [Plaintiff] belatedly seeks reimbursement from the Defendants. The lawsuit is clearly a classic example of ‘buyer’s remorse.'” 2014 N.J. Super. Unpub. LEXIS 3037.
