On October 23, 2018, Innvision Hospitality ("the defendant") obtained a judgment against Snowhite Textile ("Snowhite") for $250,000. The judgment became final on February 2, 2021.
HMB's Litigation team, led by Rick S. Rein, was brought onto the case on March 30, 2021, because the defendant's company and assets were located in Illinois. The judgment was registered in state on April 6, 2021.
The client was told in a deposition in 2017 that the defendant was trying to sell its assets to Blackford Group, but didn’t know if that ever happened. Therefore, after registering the judgment, HMB served a citation to discover assets on Snowhite and had to go to Michigan to serve a subpoena on Blackford to get documents concerning this purported sale of assets.
The documents revealed while the litigation was pending, Snowhite sold its assets for $10M. HMB then pursued where the sale proceeds went and rather than providing that information, Snowhite decided to pay the judgment in full. In essence, within two and a half months after being retained, HMB obtained a complete success for the client.
