Consumer Fraud Suit Yields $910,000 Judgment
Andrew E. Anselmi, Rosemarie DaSilva, and Zachary D. Wellbrock obtained summary judgment of $910,000, including treble damages, in a consumer fraud suit that alleged a general contractor and an affiliated subcontractor overbilled in a housing venture, misappropriated project funds and failed to pay some subcontractors. The plaintiff alleged Consumer Fraud Act violations as well as breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, fraud, unjust enrichment and negligence. On April 29, 2016, Essex County Superior Court Judge Dennis Carey III granted MARC’s motion for summary judgment, which was argued by Wellbrock. Anselmi, DaSilva and Wellbrock had previously obtained summary judgment dismissing all claims asserted against their clients.
