Homeowner prevails in dispute with contractor

Posted by Katherine M. Silverman on

A residential contractor sued our client, a homeowner who had hired the contractor to perform renovations on her home. In the initial stages of the lawsuit, the contractor asked the Court to issue a temporary restraining order requiring the homeowner to deposit certain disputed funds with the Court. After a contested hearing, Berman Fink Van Horn was successful in convincing the Court to deny the contractor’s motion, which allowed the client to retain control of the disputed funds.
