Vernace Wins Appeal Affirming Summary Judgment On Malicious Prosecution Claim

Maria Vernace, of counsel, successfully argued an appeal of a final summary judgment before the Fourth District. The underlying Palm Beach County case claimed malicious prosecution, and conspiracy against an attorney and his law firm for his actions taken while representing a condominium association. Keller Landsberg represented the attorney and his law firm in the underlying case and won summary judgment and attorneys’ fees on behalf of their client, establishing that probable cause existed for the attorney to bring the contempt proceeding against the condominium owner on behalf of the association to secure payment of the judgment awarded the association for unpaid association fees.
