SDF Attorney John Scott Wins Trial in Favor of Financial Institution

April 10, 2014

John Scott successfully defended a financial institution in a non-jury trial against the plaintiffs’ claims that they were due sums represented by four certificates of deposit. The claimed deposits were over ten years old and the financial institution had purged all records pertaining to the deposits. The Plaintiffs possessed and relied upon the receipts from the certificates of deposit, but the Court found that other evidence, including the plaintiffs’ tax returns and trial testimony, supported a finding that the plaintiffs received the deposited funds years earlier. As a result, the Court denied the plaintiffs’ claim to the funds and entered judgment for the financial institution.
