Plaintiff V. Defendant Attorney

  • Counsel: John J. Duffy
    Client: Defendant Attorney
    Outcome: Dismissal

Synopsis:

John Duffy obtained dismissal during motions in limine of a legal malpractice action against counsel for a construction bonding company.

The trial court ruled that the bonding company’s $4 million in damages were reinsured and, because the collateral source rule does not apply in legal malpractice actions, the bonding company had no recoverable damages.
