Court grants summary judgment in favor of firm’s client
Richard Johnson secures summary judgment on behalf of Blair Sterling Johnson & Martinez’s clients - two corporate agents of Columbus Development Corporation.
On May 10, 2022, the Superior Court of Guam granted the Columbus agents’ motion for summary judgment. U.L.G. Inc. and three of its shareholders brought this lawsuit against Columbus, its agents, and a number of other defendants for their various roles in an allegedly fraudulent sale of a property worth $2.5 million. They alleged that one of U.L.G’s shareholders sold the subject property to Columbus without having the requisite authority. Plaintiffs alleged Columbus, through its agents, conspired with and aided and abetted the selling shareholder in consummating the allegedly fraudulent sale. After months of discovery, the Plaintiffs failed to establish any evidence of Columbus and its agents’ wrongdoing, ultimately resulting in the Court’s grant of summary judgment.
