Stibbs & Co. Wins Back-to-Back Motions for Summary Judgment, Obtaining Final Judgment Against Commercial Landlord

About The Case

Stibbs & Co. clients, Crawford Strategies, LLC and Jennifer Crawford, tenants on a commercial lease, sued their landlord Plaza City, LLC and Antonio Plaza Rogers for breach of a Lease Agreement based on the landlord’s failure to remedy a septic system defect and failure to timely complete construction of the leased premises. On May 24, 2019, Judge Claudia Laird of the Montgomery County Court at Law No. 2 granted the Plaintiffs’ Traditional Motion for Partial Summary Judgment as to Liability for Breach of Contract, holding that Defendant Plaza City, LLC was liable to Plaintiffs for breach of contract. On November 22, 2019, Judge Laird entered a second order granting Plaintiffs’ Traditional Motion for Summary Judgment as to Damages and awarding Plaintiffs $83,560.00 in damages, attorneys’ fees of $31,037.27, pre- and post-judgment interest, and court-costs. (Plaintiffs ultimately dismissed their case against Antonio Rogers, after obtaining final judgment against Plaza City, LLC.)
