Georgia Law Firm Recovers Fees and Expenses in Successful Defense of Counterclaim

Pope McGlamry (“PMKM&N”), a prominent Georgia law firm specializing in civil litigation, recovered under quantum meruit to have Suntrust Banks, Inc. indemnify Sandra Jansky for the fees and costs associated with the successful defense of Suntrust’s counterclaim.

PMKM&N successfully defended Sandra Jansky, former Chief Credit Officer of Suntrust Banks, Inc., against Suntrust’s counterclaim seeking over $9 million dollars from Ms. Jansky associated with the bank’s restatement of earnings.  Following the grant of summary judgment on Suntrust’s claims, PMKM&N sought to have Suntrust indemnify Ms. Jansky for the fees and costs associated with the defense.  The United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia granted plaintiff’s request under a theory of quantum meruit, and directed Suntrust to pay Mrs. Jansky for not only the fees and expenses associated with the defense, but also for the fees and expenses related to the indemnity enforcement action.   Click here to see a full copy of the Court’s Order awarding fees.  The total amount awarded exceeded $280,000.00.  Click here to see a full copy of the Court’s Order determining amount of fees.
