Litigation Partner Obtains Three Million Dollar Judgment in Bankruptcy Dispute01.26.2012
Litigator Juan Torres obtained a judgment of almost $3 million in bankruptcy court on behalf of a Chapter 7 Trustee. He established that the defendant defrauded the debtor in connection with the debtor’s sale to the defendant of a partially completed apartment building which the defendant completed using his own funds. As a result, the defendant received none of the funds he incurred in finishing the building. The court awarded the Trustee the entire building, as well as punitive damages and attorney’s fees.
