Lawsuit Against Business Client Dismissed

Lawsuit Against Business Client Dismissed

Alec’s client, a local mechanic and business owner, came to us when a disgruntled customer brought a baseless lawsuit against them. The customer had our client work on his old vehicle that was in need of serious maintenance. Our client did good work for the customer and even discounted his bill. However, because the car was so old and under-maintained it was still making some unrelated noises after the work was completed. Taking advantage of our client generously writing-off some of the work they had already done, the customer pushed for them to perform more free work. When the client politely declined the additional free work, the customer sued them.

Alec got to work immediately and had the first lawsuit dismissed. However, because the law requires it, the Judge gave the customer another chance to amend his lawsuit if he had the evidence or the good-faith basis to bring a valid claim against our client.

After the customer filed their amended lawsuit, it was still clear that he did not have a legal basis to sue our client. So, Alec filed and argued a second Motion to Dismiss. The Judge granted that motion WITH PREJUDICE, meaning that the customer could no longer bother our client with additional lawsuits regarding the work performed by our client.

No matter how baseless the claim is, being sued can be stressful for businesses and take valuable time away from them. If you own a business and are looking for swift and aggressive defense from lawsuits, contact Alec Waid at Battaglia, Ross, Dicus & McQuaid, P.A., so we can get to work for you.
