Receiver Wins on Motion to Dismiss
Brian Spitler and Joe Kingma obtained dismissal for their client, an accountant and his firm, on claims brought by the principals of a company in receivership. The motion to dismiss successfully argued that the accountant and his firm were immune from liability based on their official capacity as court-appointed receivers. After a drawn out fight, which included the filing and refiling of lawsuits and a visit to the appellate court, the trial court dismissed the case in its entirety bringing resolution to the case prior to any formal discovery. Order is subject to further appeal.
