Judgment Against Export Company: $2,453,566.51

Our client, a local business owner, lent an export company $1,621,415. When the money was due, the export company claimed that the client had invested the money rather than lent it to it. Jesus Garcia, Jr. agreed to tackle the case and filed suit.

The export company got bold and brought claims against the client and its CEO for Negligent Misrepresentation, Defamation, Breach of Fiduciary Duty, Fraud, Fraud in the Inducement, and Punitive Damages. It argued that the client and it became partners in a business aimed at selling products to Walmart Mexico. Our clients, the company and the CEO, denied all claims. And, the Court Agreed. All of the export companies’ claims were denied and stricken. In addition, Garcia de la Garza, LLP obtained a judgment against the export company for $2,453,566.51.
