Clark Hill Litigation Attorneys Anthony Agosta and Matt Heron Win Dismissal of Claims in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan

Feb 21, 2011

DETROIT, MI - Clark Hill litigation attorneys Anthony Agosta and Matt Heron recently won dismissal of claims against Clark Hill’s client from a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Clark Hill’s client is a logistics manager and had contracted with an automotive supplier to help move industrial presses from the supplier’s facilities in Michigan to Brazil.  The client worked with a trucking company to transport the presses from Michigan to a port in Houston, Texas, for the supplier. The supplier ultimately refused to pay approximately $302,000 in invoices, and the trucking company sued both Clark Hill’s client and the supplier. The supplier then filed a cross-claim against Clark Hill’s client seeking indemnification and alleging damages in excess of $1.5 million based on the move from Texas to Brazil.
