  • Obtained defense verdict on behalf of our client, a federally insured credit union, against Plaintiff who disputed fees and asserted Breach of Contract or Warranty, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Unfair Deceptive Trade Practices, Violation of New York General Business Law Section 349, and Conversion; the jury found that Plaintiff could not prove breach of contract or any quantifiable measure of damages.
