Robb Cruser and Timothy Mitchell Won Summary Judgment on Behalf of Enterprise Leasing Company of Georgia, LLC on Claims of Malicious Prosecution and False Arrest

Robb Cruser and Timothy Mitchell won summary judgment on behalf of Enterprise Leasing Company of Georgia, LLC on claims of malicious prosecution and false arrest related to the plaintiff’s arrest under a warrant issued for a stolen rental vehicle. The court held that the rental contract’s applicable exculpatory clause barred the plaintiff’s claims, and that Enterprise had probable cause in reporting its rental vehicle as missing based on its extensive efforts to locate the vehicle, despite the fact that the plaintiff later returned the vehicle and paid associated late fees. The court also found for Enterprise on the plaintiff’s associated defamation and punitive damages claims.
