Andrew Harris Secures Favorable Trial Judgments for Real Estate Management Company


September 10, 2013

Detroit, MI – On October 9, 2013, Segal McCambridge associate Andrew M. Harris secured favorable trial judgments on behalf of commercial real estate management company NAI Farbman, which was seeking to recover possession of rented premises and past rent dues from two separate tenants. The Honorable William Richards, who presided over the trials, granted Segal McCambridge’s client its request for possession judgments, and later granted money judgments in both cases.

During the initial September hearings, the first tenant, Hudson Company, disputed the amount of rent owed, claiming its delinquency was thousands less than the amount Farbman alleged.  Similarly, the second tenant, Touching Lives We Care, claimed there was an additional lease amendment and unaccounted payments, which would reduce the organization’s delinquency.  The judge granted Farbman’s request for possession judgments in both matters, but adjourned the money damages portion of the cases for separate trials. Two weeks later, Mr. Harris appeared again before the 46th District Court, where in both cases money judgments were awarded in his client’s favor.
