Hall v. Sullivan (Maryland U.S.D.C.)

Filed December 7, 2006--Opinion by Judge William D. Quarles, Jr.

The plaintiff has failed to present affirmative evidence to sustain his allegations that: (1) the defendants breached the standard of care in structuring the plaintiff's initial investment in the a corporation; (2) the defendants were negligent in charging the plaintiff attorney's fees to pursue certain meritless claims for the plaintiff; or (3) the defendants against whom these claims were brought would have settled the claims against them but for the defendant attorney's alleged negligent conduct. Without evidence to sustain the allegations underlying the plaintiff's claims, grant of summary judgment in favor of the defendants is appropriate.
