Court of Civil Appeals affirms summary judgment in commercial dispute
Nelson Gill recently completed a commercial dispute between a purchaser of a construction company and the seller of that company. Mr. Gill represented the defendant seller. The case centered on the interpretation of a written contract between the parties, which provided that, in certain circumstances, the purchaser was to be indemnified for losses that he incurred on projects that were already in progress prior to the purchase. The plaintiff asserted multiple claims, and primarily sought damages for losses that he claimed that he incurred after the execution of the contract. The Montgomery County Circuit Court granted summary judgment in favor of Mr. Gill’s client and the Court of Civil Appeals affirmed. Salter v. Moseley, 2012 Ala. Civ. App. LEXIS 191, July 27, 2012.
