John D. v. Private Club
Schwartz Hannum PC successfully represented a private club in a Superior Court bench trial involving an independent contractor who sought payments for services allegedly performed outside his written agreement with the club. After a three-day trial, the judge ruled that the club owed nothing to the contractor.
Finding that the contractor had voluntarily attended club functions and events out of his own interest in developing business from the club’s members and patrons under the written agreement, the judge dismissed the contractor’s claim and entered judgment for the club.
Jaimie A. McKean represented the club at the trial.
