$522,241 Judgment in Lumber Case

October 2019

Douglas Hargett and Rick Hall represent a company that entered into an agreement related to the purchase, storage, and sale of lumber. Under the agreement, the defendants were to account for and pay the client for lumber within a specified timeframe. Discrepancies occurred and a lawsuit was filed by the client. The firm obtained a $522,241.64 judgment on behalf of the client. Douglas and Rick later reached a settlement with one of the defendants who filed bankruptcy, and are pursuing a nondischargeable judgment against another defendant that is pending in bankruptcy court and set for trial in 2020.
