ALBUQUERQUE JOURNAL FEATURES STELLA VIGIL'S WIN AT TRIAL

Nancy Stanley

SANTA FE, NM   February 3, 2017 - Today's Albuquerque Journal describes the jury verdict in favor of Bardacke Allison client Stella Vigil in a jury trial last November and December. Ms. Vigil’s life savings were taken by her financial institution to pay a debt of Ms. Vigil's daughter—a debt Ms. Vigil had not co-signed or guaranteed and which she was not told about. The financial institution claimed it had the right to the money because it was in a joint account on which Ms. Vigil’s daughter was listed. Ms. Vigil prevailed on all nine counts against the financial institution, including conversion, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and willful violation of the Unfair Practices Act. The jury also returned a verdict of punitive damages in Ms. Vigil’s favor.  Ben Allison and Justin Miller represented Stella Vigil at trial.
