Monaghan Leahy’s clients include individuals, large and small companies, insurance companies, and municipalities.
In a recent jury trial at the Cumberland County Superior Court, Associate Allyson Knowles successfully defended her client, a young woman involved in a minor motor vehicle accident, against a lawsuit for personal injuries. Despite the Plaintiff’s request for $300,000 in money damages, the jury returned a verdict of only $3,600. Congratulations, Allyson, on a job well done!
The ML Team enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating the holiday season recently. We were joined by several of our former colleagues and a fun time was had by all!
In a recent appeal handled by John Wall and Laura Maher, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld summary judgment in favor of Monaghan Leahy’s clients: York County, the York County Sheriff, and several sheriff’s deputies. The deputies responded to a disturbance in Acton, which resulted in the plaintiff’s arrest. Arguing that the arrest was not supported by probable cause, the plaintiff claimed that the deputies violated his constitutional rights and engaged in malicious prosecution. Monaghan Leahy demonstrated that the deputies had ample probable cause to justify the arrest and the federal district court granted all defendants summary judgment. The First Circuit agreed that the deputies’ actions were lawful: “On this record, no reasonable jury could find facts that would lead to a determination that the officers lacked probable cause to arrest Charron.” The full text of the First Circuit’s decision can be found here: 21-1753P-01A.pdf (uscourts.gov).
We at Monaghan Leahy wish our partners Tom Leahy and Cornelia Fuchs, health, happiness and enjoyment in their much deserved retirements. We also send them our heartfelt thanks and deep gratitude for helping make Monaghan Leahy such a wonderful place.
