Court/Case No: Genesee County Circuit Court/Case No. 10-94535 NO
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Demand: None. The amount of the indemnity sought would be unknown until the conclusion of the case.
Verdict: Summary Disposition granted
Name of Judge(s): Richard B. Yuille
Keys to the Case:
The case arose out of a slip and fall in the parking lot of an office building. Catalyst, the defendant in the primary plaintiff’s suit, brought suit against Secrest Wardle’s client, Green, seeking indemnity pursuant to a commercial lease. Through exhaustive legal research and thorough brief writing, Secrest Wardle was able to persuade the judge that the indemnity clause did not apply to the particular circumstances of plaintiff’s alleged fall. Green was therefore dismissed from the case.
