Clark Hill attorney Daniel Minkus featured in Chicago Sun Times
Clark Hill attorney Daniel Minkus was recently featured in the Chicago Sun Times article, “Has coronavirus made you push back a wedding, cancel a trip? What consumers need to know.” The article discusses real-life circumstances in which consumers are being forced to cancel and/or postpone events in the wake of COVID-19 and, consequently, putting them in precarious financial situations.
“In some instances, such as with nonrefundable hotel rooms bought through a discount site, the consumer could end up having to eat the loss, says Michigan attorney Daniel H. Minkus, an expert on business and real estate law. That’s because it’s still possible to go to the hotel and use the room — as long as the hotel remains open. People chose to bear the risk when they clicked on the ‘no-refunds’ purchase, Minkus says: ‘In all likelihood, the consumer is going to get stuck.’”
