CEFU Attorneys Slank and Brown Secure Affirmance of Summary Disposition in Michigan Court of Appeals


Noreen Slank and Geoff Brown recently secured affirmance of summary disposition in the Michigan Court of Appeals in Roberts v LaSusa. The lawyer defendant was sued too late. His contacts with the clients’ appellate attorney in the two years pre-suit were ministerial, did not provide substantive legal services, and were accepted as meeting ethical obligations to former clients. His former law firm could not properly be sued for vicarious liability because a statute of limitation dismissal against their agent was an adjudication on the merits.
