Alison Deaner obtains discontinuance of ARFD clients following filing of summary judgment motion
Alison Deaner, through preparation and well-written summary judgment papers, convinced a plaintiff to drop a lawsuit brought against her clients – no easy feat. The preparation for such a motion came during precise questioning of the plaintiff at deposition, which eradicated a certain record-keeping issue in the case. The record-keeping issue resolved, Alison thereafter moved to dismiss the case on the medicine, crafting arguments that convinced plaintiff’s counsel to voluntarily discontinue the case without opposition. It was Alison’s preparation and obtaining multiple important admissions she obtained at the plaintiff’s deposition, combined with excellent written advocacy during summary judgment proceedings, that compelled the plaintiff to discontinue the case.
