Financial Services Defense Verdict

Members of Butler Snow’s Commercial Litigation Group successfully defended a regional financial services provider in a case involving claims of fraud, conversion and conspiracy, among others, in Tennessee state court. The primary beneficiary of a decedent’s estate alleged that the bank’s customer forged her name on a check and cashed it with the assistance of a bank employee. The court ruled that the bank (though not the bank’s co-defendant) was not liable. Members of the defense team were Melody McAnally and Gadson William (Will) Perry.
