Bardacke Allison Team wins Jury Trial
Ben Allison and Justin Miller won a jury trial in November and December 2016 against a financial institution that took a widow's life savings to pay a debt she had not guaranteed and was never told about. The financial institution claimed the right of setoff allowed it to take the money, which was in a joint account naming both the owner and her daughter, who was indebted to the financial institution. A jury determined the financial institution committed conversion, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and willful violation of the New Mexico Unfair Practices Act, among other wrongs. The jury also awarded punitive damages in favor of the Firm’s client.
