The Massachusetts Superior Court granted summary judgment entirely dismissing a breach of contract suit brought by the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office against a Conn Kavanaugh client, a general contractor. James B. Peloquin
and Andrew R. Dennington
briefed and argued the summary judgment motion. In a prior personal injury trial, Conn Kavanaugh obtained a defense verdict for this client in 2003. The Massachusetts Appeals Court affirmed the decision in 2009, and held that the Commonwealth was solely responsible for the plaintiff's injuries. The Superior Court's recent decision affirmed that Conn Kavanaugh's client has no obligation to indemnify the Commonwealth for the judgment rendered against it.
