Summary Judgment Dismissal

Joel Wright and Marc Rosenberg, with the support of Kellan Byrne and Danielle Rieger, won a summary judgment dismissal in multiparty litigation in Samuelson v. Law Firm in King County Superior Court.  Plaintiffs brought claims of legal malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, conspiracy, and legal malpractice against an attorney that had represented them as co-personal representatives of an estate.  Plaintiffs alleged that the estate was co-owner of a company, and that the attorney conspired with the other co-owner to pressure them into selling stock in the company for less than it was worth.  Joel and Marc convinced the court that the attorney’s actions were not the proximate cause of any damage to the plaintiffs.  The remaining parties are set to go to trial in April 2017.
