McAlpin Conroy successfully obtains dismissal of lawsuit brought against its client

McAlpin Conroy successfully obtained an Order of dismissal where an arrest for a 48-ft fishing vessel was sought. See the Court’s Order, here: DE 37 – Omnibus Order

Kansas resident brought suit in Florida against his former business partner, also a Kansas resident. The dispute in Florida centered around ownership of the fishing vessel that was previously used for fishing charter purposes by the business partners in Key West, Florida. The Kansas resident’s lawsuit requested that the Court arrest the fishing vessel and deprive McAlpin Conroy’s client of his maritime property. 

Attorneys Michael E. Conroy and L. Alex Perez successfully moved to dismiss the Florida action before the discovery stage, saving their client time and legal expenses. They also ensured that their client maintain possession of his fishing vessel.
