Arnstein & Lehr Tampa Partner Robin Trupp and Associate Brian Cummings secured a speedy result from Florida’s Second District Court of Appeal for Partner Ron Cohn’s financial institution client. A mere eight days after oral argument, the appellate court affirmed a Final Judgment of Foreclosure, which included the involuntary dismissal at trial of multiple lender-liability claims against the client that the trial court later deemed frivolous. Mr. Trupp handled oral argument while Mr. Cummings drafted the brief. They intend to employ the same division of labor in a second appeal spawned by the same case: review of a Final Judgment in favor of the Bank for $270,000 in attorney’s fees against both the borrowers and their attorneys. They hope to secure the same speedy result the second time around, providing finality for a client that endured four years of litigation and appeals after filing a garden-variety commercial foreclosure action.
