Summary Judgment Win on Alter Ego Theory

Alan Jampol obtained summary judgment in a state court for an insurance brokerage firm on a professional liability claim. This claim was based primarily upon the contention the brokerage firm was the alter ego of another brokerage firm against which the plaintiff had obtained a large default judgment. After the summary judgment was affirmed on appeal, the plaintiff filed a new and substantially identical action in federal court, which the federal judge allowed to go to trial.

Alan prevailed at trial on the merits of the claim, thereafter securing an abandonment by the plaintiff of any appeal and release of the brokerage firm and its principal from any further related claims.
