Conversion & Intentional Tort Lawsuit Dismissed
J.G. v. W.B & A.B - Supreme Court Suffolk County
Here we represented defendants who were being sued jointly for conversion and the intentional tort of damaging property. The defendants did not have access to any insurance coverage to represent them, and chose our office to represent them after speaking with multiple attorneys.
The Plaintiff's attorney failed to appear at a compliance conference and the case was adjourned. The Plaintiff's attorney again failed to appear at the next compliance conference, and our office made a motion to dismiss the case under 22 NYCRR 202.27. The Supreme Court Justice denied the motion, without prejudice, giving the Plaintiff one more shot.
The Plaintiff again failed to appear at a conference and this time the Justice granted our motion to dismiss the case for failure to appear at a compliance conference.
