Represented a leading supplier of fridge packs and other beverage containers in litigation brought by a former sales representative claiming an enormous sum of unpaid commissions. The firm was retained to take over defense of the lawsuit while the parties awaited a ruling on the client's summary judgment motion, fully briefed more than three years earlier. Due to this incredible delay in ruling on the motion, the plaintiff filed a motion for recusal. Shortly after being retained, the court clerk called our attorneys to let them know that the judge had prepared an order denying the client's motion. In light of the plaintiff's request for recusal, however, the court said that it would not enter the order and would instead transfer the case to Business Court. Anticipating that the Business Court would simply sign the order prepared by the prior judge, we identified additional arguments entitling the client to summary judgment, and persuaded the Business Court to let our client file a supplemental brief almost four years after the last summary judgment brief had been filed. One week after the hearing, the court entered an order granting summary judgment to our client on all counts. The defendant immediately appealed the Business Court’s decision. The firm prepared all of the appellate briefing, and the appellate court affirmed the Business Court's ruling.
