Joe Holko, Greg Kunkle and Christopher Gallagher win consent dismissal of five-million dollar counterclaim.
March 18, 2019
TT&H Attorneys Joe Holko, Greg Kunkle and Christopher Gallagher defended a five-million dollar counterclaim filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The claim arose from commercial auto lease agreements and personal guaranties for two dozen vehicles used for ridesharing in Key West, Florida. After TT&H filed a motion for summary judgment, counter-plaintiff agreed to a Consent Judgment and a dismissal of the counterclaim. In the Motion, Joe, Greg and Christopher had argued that counter-plaintiff’s fraud count was barred by the written terms of the leases, and that any personal claims of the guarantor were barred for lack of standing. It was also argued that TT&H’s client did not breach the lease agreements and that counter-plaintiff could not prove that his business would become the next Uber or Lyft, as had been claimed.
