BTLG client wins appeal on contract interpretation


Columbia, MD—September 6, 2008— 

        Fulton Restoration, LLC, filed a Complaint for Failure to Pay Rent against its tenant, Jeffrey A. Krew, LLC (“Krew”), in the District Court of Maryland for Howard County.  At issue was whether Krew was obligated to pay certain charges pursuant to the lease between the parties.  At the conclusion of trial, the court found that Krew did not owe any rent. 

        BTLG filed an appeal of on behalf of Fulton Restoration, LLC to the Circuit Court of Maryland for Howard County.  The Circuit Court, in an opinion dated July 28, 2008, found that the trial court erred.  The trial's court's finding of no rent due was clearly erroneous.  The Circuit Court reversed the decision of the District Court and remanded the matter to the District Court for further proceedings.
