Representative Work: Consumer Protection Act Defense

We represented a Washington homebuilder in a lawsuit filed against a real estate investor for breach of promissory note and the judicial foreclosure of the trust deed that secured the note.  The defendant investor attempted to avoid liability for his obligations by asserting Washington Consumer Protection Act counterclaims against our client.  At the trial court, we prevailed on a motion for summary judgment granting the client's claims against the investor and defeating the investor's Consumer Protection Act counterclaims.  The investor appealed the trial court's rulings. On the appeal, we decisively defeated the investor's complex Consumer Protection Act arguments, and the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's rulings.
