CDQ Client Wins Summary Judgment on Multiple Tort and Contract Claims
In November 2019, following more than two years of litigation, Dan Dowd, Betsy Lamm and Jenna Brownlee obtained summary judgment in favor of CDQ’s client in litigation relating to the management of a nonprofit Arizona corporation. In the litigation, the plaintiff (a former director of the corporation), asserted claims against CDQ’s client (a director and officer of the corporation) for alleged breach of contract, unjust enrichment, declaratory relief, accounting and conversion. The plaintiff further sought emergency injunctive relief and the appointment of a receiver. CDQ successfully defended against all claims asserted by the plaintiff, including plaintiff’s demands for interim remedies and a receivership. In addition, prior to securing summary judgment in our client’s favor, CDQ participated in an evidentiary hearing before the Honorable Hugh Hegyi and succeeded in securing the removal of plaintiff from the corporation’s board based on misconduct. The Honorable Danielle Viola subsequently issued the ruling granting CDQ’s Motion for Summary Judgment and ruling in favor of CDQ’s client on all claims.
