Obtained summary judgment for Tire Centers LLC in a multimillion-dollar fraud case in the Southern District of New York.
Star Funding, Inc. v. Vault Minerals, LLC et al.
Obtained summary judgment dismissing breach of contract and promissory estoppel against WTO’s client Tire Centers LLC (TCi), a wholly-owned subsidiary of WTO client Michelin North America. The plaintiff alleged that TCi should pay millions of dollars’ worth of fraudulent purchase orders submitted by a rogue former employee, a key member of a conspiracy to defraud TCi and other companies. With TCi unwilling to offer any kind of settlement for these fraudulent claims, WTO lawyers argued dispositive motions for nearly six hours, ultimately prevailing on all claims against the company.
