Attorney Schoenbeck argued before the Supreme Court on January 8, 2019, in the case of Mealy v. Prins. Our opponents were not happy with the Roberts County jury verdict results and appealed the decision to the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court affirmed summary judgment on 48 promissory notes on which the statute of limitations had run. The Supreme Court affirmed a longstanding precedent on reaffirmation of old debt, and set aside a $135,000 unjust enrichment verdict that the Plaintiffs obtained. The Supreme Court affirmed the $135,000 verdict we obtained for our client based on unjust enrichment.
A couple of minor issues were sent back for retrial, and the matter settled before a retrial.
