Partner Michael Colvecchio Granted Plaintiff’s Verdict

Lewis Johs Partner Michael T. Colavecchio obtained a verdict on behalf of his client in a case tried in the Supreme Court Nassau County commercial division.  The client, a former employee of the defendant, claimed entitlement to unpaid commissions for the years 2004 through 2008.  The defendant contended that the plaintiff was not covered under the commissions plan, and that even if he was, his sales were insufficient to qualify for commissions.

The case had been initially dismissed on defendant’s motion for summary judgment, but was reinstated on Mike’s motion to reargue.  Additionally, the court denied the client’s entitlement to a jury, but Mike obtained entitlement to a jury by appealing the court’s denial.

After seven years of litigation, the trial resulted in a verdict in favor of Mike’s client for the full amount claimed.  Because of the age of the case and statutory language, the client is entitled to almost 100% interest, liquidated damages and attorney’s fees.
