Kaplin Stewart Construction Attorneys Win “Bait and Switch” Trial

3/12/2014 | Construction Blog

A team of Kaplin Stewart attorneys recently won a significant verdict on behalf of one of its site contractor clients. Mohammad A. Ghiasuddin served as lead counsel at trial and was assisted by Mike Hogan.

Following several years of litigation, the case was tried before a jury in Northampton County over the course of a week. Mr. Ghiasuddin argued that the Defendant was liable for a “bait and switch” scheme by substituting a filler material for what the defendant had represented to be a specific cement product which met a defined industry standard. Kaplin Stewart asserted claims for fraud, breach of contract, and breach of several warranties. The jury found in favor of Kaplin Stewart’s client on all three counts and awarded the plaintiff $345,000.
