Representative Matters

Obtained dismissal on appeal of a class action brought against a fitness facility under New Jersey’s Truth in Consumer Contract Warranty and Notice Act. Adopting the arguments presented in the briefing and at oral argument, the Appellate Division reversed the entry of judgment in plaintiff’s favor and further reversed the order certifying a class. The Appellate Division then remanded the matter to the trial court with directions to enter judgment in favor of the fitness facility, thus ending a multi-year legal battle and eliminating, in its entirety, a multi-million dollar potential class liability.      

Obtained dismissal of New Jersey professional malpractice claim upon the filing of a motion to dismiss for failure to file an affidavit of merit. The motion was granted, dismissing a complaint based on allegations that an insurance producer was negligent for allegedly failing to procure proper insurance coverage. The decision was appealed to the Appellate Division, which upheld the dismissal.
