Defense Puts Lid on Complex Legal Malpractice Action

Obtained a decision from the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit denying the appellant’s motion for re-hearing in a complex legal malpractice action that involved a series of cases spanning 25 years and invoked the jurisdiction of several state and federal courts. The case arose out of a Family Court matter in Camden County involving alimony and child support. The plaintiff brought common-law fraud and Section 1983 claims against his ex-wife and her attorney (our client). The District Court granted our motion for summary judgment, and the Third Circuit affirmed. Then, after the plaintiff/appellant moved for re-hearing, the Third Circuit denied that petition under the Rooker-Feldman Doctrine and the statute of limitations.
