Breach of Contract Counterclaim Victory Obtained through Procedural Rules

A grasp of procedural rules often leads to substantive advantage. Recently, Cuddy & Feder obtained a default judgment on a client’s breach of contract counterclaim by successfully arguing that the plaintiff had “no reasonable excuse” for failing to timely answer the counterclaim, and that the plaintiff did not have a potentially meritorious defense to the counterclaim.  Compelling presentation of the evidence and arguments resulted in the motion being granted.  Our litigators seek not only think outside of the box, but skillfully use a forum’s rules to achieve success for our clients.
