MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Following a federal court’s dismissal last month of virtually all of the Plaintiff’s claims against Shutts & Bowen LLP and its partner, Kevin Cowan, the parties agreed to a stipulation of dismissal of all remaining issues, with no payments for the settlement. Shutts and Cowan had been defendants in the case of JAWHBS, LLC v. Arevalo, et al., Case No. 15-24176-CV-GAYLES (S.D. Fla.) in which the Plaintiff had alleged various federal and state claims based on a 2013 bankruptcy sale of real property near Brickell Avenue. Today, United States District Court Judge Darrin P. Gayles entered the final order of dismissal.
Shutts General Counsel Jonathan Cohen said, “When Shutts believes a lawsuit has no merit, we will strongly defend rather than make a payment to an undeserving plaintiff. From the beginning, Shutts has emphasized that its attorneys conducted themselves properly at all times, and this result is a vindication of their professional integrity.”
Shutts and Cowan were defended by Kendall Coffey, Kevin Kaplan and David Zack of Coffey Burlington, P.L.
