Phoenix French Creek Manor Wins Compulsory Nonsuit

Stradley Ronon’s trial team won a nonsuit for client Phoenix French Creek Manor in litigation involving the termination of purchase and option agreements for commercial real estate in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The plaintiff initially filed a $26 million claim against PFCM; however, prior to trial, Stradley’s litigation team secured a partial summary judgment dismissing the claims related to the option agreement, significantly reducing the amount in controversy. Two claims related to the purchase agreement proceeded to trial. Following the testimony of the plaintiff’s first witness, the Stradley team moved for dismissal based on the witnesses’ judicial admissions, but Judge William Mahon reserved his decision until after the close of plaintiff’s case- in-chief. After four days of testimony from six witnesses, the judge granted a nonsuit and brought the matter to a successful end for PFCM.
