Defended a Major Real Estate Developer
February 17, 2017Defended a major Real Estate developer of a large Northeast Ohio mixed-use commercial development project, where an oil and gas well operation on the development site had obtained issuance of a TRO before the firm’s engagement drawing a halt to prevent the dismantling of the well, effectively shutting down development across a substantial portion of the site. Kaufman & Company successfully litigated the defense position in a hearing to oppose the well interest-holders’ position. Kaufman & Company first succeeded in persuading the Court to increase the bond to a very high amount in order to continue the temporary restraining order. Following the first day of the PI hearing, with the new high bond due to be filed, the Plaintiffs dropped their opposition, allowing the resumption of the development with only a minor delay to the project.
