HPW’s In-Depth Discovery Tactics Lead to Defeat of Counterclaim and $335,000 Consent Judgment

HPW, on behalf of a general contractor, asserted claims for breach of contract, fraud, and negligent misrepresentation against a subcontractor and its sole officer in a Federal court action. The subcontractor counterclaimed for breach of contract seeking over $660,000 in damages. After HPW proved that the officer falsely certified payment applications submitted to the general contractor and failed to pay his sub-subcontractors, the officer agreed to enter into a consent judgment holding him personally liable for the full amount of the subcontract plus attorneys’ fees – a $335,000 judgment.
