Kevin Schlosser, a partner and Chair of the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department of the law firm of Meyer, Suozzi, English & Klein P.C. located in Garden City, N.Y., has obtained another trial victory, in a breach of contract case in the New York Supreme Court, Commercial Division, New York County. The case, recognized on October 3, 2013 by the New York Law Journal as a Decision of Interest, is cited as Trump Securities v. Setton International Foods, 602731/09, NYLJ, 1202621558812, at *1 (Sup., NY, Decided August 29, 2013). Mr. Schlosser tried the case before the Honorable Melvin L. Schweitzer, successfully obtaining a defense judgment completely exonerating his client and dismissing all claims asserted in the lawsuit. The plaintiff, Trump Securities, LLC, was seeking fees of over $1.2 million, claiming to have earned them under a financial brokerage contract. Mr. Schlosser first defeated Trump’s motion for summary judgment, then won at trial, establishing that Trump was improperly trying to obtain an unjustified windfall that it never earned under the parties’ contract.
This is the latest trial victory in a series of recent notable trial wins for Mr. Schlosser. In August, 2013, for example, Mr. Schlosser prevailed in a trial in the State Supreme Court in Nassau County. In that case, the Honorable F. Dana Winslow found in favor of Mr. Schlosser’s client in a complex dispute over the validity of a lease and easement agreement affecting real property in Lattingtown, New York. The court upheld the agreement as requested by Mr. Schlosser’s client. In April 2013, Mr. Schlosser was recognized by the New York Law Journal for obtaining the highest contract jury verdict in the State of New York in 2012. Mr. Schlosser obtained a judgment of $12.5 million in that case.
