Kelley Kronenberg Secures Walk-Away Dismissal with Prejudice Saving TypTap $102k in Damages

In a resounding legal triumph, Kelley Kronenberg Partners, Casey Mullin and Charles Prior, achieved an impressive feat by securing a walk-away dismissal with prejudice in a case centered around a late-reported Hurricane Irma claim. At the heart of the trial lay a pivotal question: had the plaintiff duly met her post-loss obligations prior to commencing legal action? It is worth emphasizing that the plaintiff initiated the lawsuit after the expiration of the three-year statute of limitations. 

Our formidable legal team approached this challenge with unwavering dedication, meticulously crafting a compelling Motion for Summary Judgment (MSJ) and adroitly invoking the formidable provisions of 57.105—a statute renowned for tackling frivolous claims head-on.  

Casey and Charles’ aggressive and well-constructed strategy led the plaintiff to voluntarily dismiss her case during the Safe Harbor period. This strategic masterstroke led us to secure a highly favorable outcome for our client, avoiding damages valued at $102,000.00, plus potential attorney’s fees and costs.  

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Amy Arnoldo and TypTap for entrusting us with the stewardship of this pivotal matter and eagerly anticipate the opportunity to continue safeguarding our clients’ interests in forthcoming cases.
