James Obtains Dismissal of Claims Against CPA


Paul James recently presented a Motion to Dismiss in Alabama Circuit Court on behalf of a CPA sued for fraud arising out of a business transaction. Specifically, the Plaintiff accused the CPA of negligence for allowing the Plaintiff’s mortgage on certain properties to become in jeopardy of being taken for its use and as collateral in a business transaction. The CPA was also accused of conspiracy in working with certain parties and non-parties to obtain the property in question.

Despite multiple claims of fraud, deceit, suppression, negligence, and conspiracy, the trial court granted the Motion to Dismiss in favor of the CPA and dismissed the case with prejudice. The Plaintiff’s filed not one but two separate Motions to Reconsider which were both denied by the trial court. The Plaintiff declined to pursue an appeal.
