Michael Conway Successfully Defends Contractor in Federal Jury Trial

After an 8-day Trial at the Federal Courthouse in Albany, a local Jury found for Warren County Framing Contractor Michael Terry (a Harris, Conway & Donovan, PLLC client) in relation to his efforts to contribute to a major remodeling project of a lake house in Schroon Lake, NY.  Necdet and Lisa Aktas of New Jersey had sued the General Contractor of the $300,000.00 remodeling project, claiming that his negligence cost them $450,000.00 (the cost to demolish the faulty work and rebuild the house). The General Contractor denied the allegations but also commenced a suit against Terry, maintaining that if there were damages, it was the fault of Terry. The Jury found Terry and the General Contractor free of negligence.
