July 2014 News

On July 28, 2014 Partner Darren McDonough and IMGT successfully defended a foreclosure action where IMGT’s client had made an agreement with the Bank to satisfy the mortgage. The client paid the agreed upon amount and the Bank still filed the foreclosure action. IMGT and Partner Darren McDonough were able to get the bank to dismiss the foreclosure action. Making sure that IMGT fully represented our clients interests, Darren McDonough wasn’t satisfied with just getting the foreclosure action dismissed. Instead, IMGT and our client then instituted an action to get the outstanding mortgage cancelled with no additional payment, which resulted in a positive result for our client.

On July 24-27, 2014 Partner Samantha K Brumbaugh attended the American Bankruptcy Institute‘s 19th Annual Southeast Bankruptcy Conference, held in Amelia Island, Florida.

At the conference, Samantha K Brumbaugh attended seminars and workshops presented by some of the leading bankruptcy attorneys in practice today, as well as presentations by several Federal Bankruptcy Judges. IMGT was proud to send Samantha to this conference, and is excited to see the new and innovative strategies and approaches she has picked up from the conference.

On July 18, 2014 Partner Darren McDonough and IMGT successfully defended an action for alienation of affections and criminal conversation. The plaintiff sought damages against the IMGT client in excess of $10,000. After completing discovery and mediation, the plaintiff took a dismissal of all claims, which was filed on July 18th. This is the second action for alienation of affection and criminal conversation that Darren McDonough has successfully defended in the last couple of years. The prior action involved a claim for $1,000,000 that settled just before a jury was picked, with a dismissal of the criminal conversation claim and a settlement of $50 for the alienation of affection claim.
