Montgomery Little & Soran Attorneys Represent Commercial Landlord before Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals

Chris Taravella, Michael McCormick, and Chrisopher Carry represented a commercial landlord before the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.  Oral argument was held on November 15, 2017.  The appeal primarily concerns whether there was sufficient evidence to support the district court’s conclusions in favor of the firm’s client following a bench trial.  At the district court, the firm obtained a judgment in favor of the firm’s client in excess of $700,000.  This judgment involved piercing the veil of a corporate defendant in order to hold its controlling shareholder liable for the conduct and actions of the corporation.  Prior to trial, the firm also prevailed on a summary judgment motion against the corporation in the amount of $2.4 million.
