Des Moines Contractor Required to Give Over Half of Payment Back to Attorney Anthony Osborn's Clients

A Monona County District Court Judge has ordered a Des Moines home builder to pay nearly $200,000 to Attorney Anthony Osborn's clients from Whiting, Iowa. According to the Court ruling, which followed a non-jury trial, the contractor received $375,000 from the couple but failed to complete their residence, leaving them with an incomplete home and a substantial amount of work which had to be completed by another contractor. The contractor disputed the allegations in the lawsuit, claiming, among other things, that he had been paid for services rendered and nothing more due to changes during the project which, he argued, increased the costs of construction.

Iowa Supreme Court Appeal Won by Attorneys Anthony Osborn and Jeana Goosmann

Posted by Goosmann Law Team on Feb 9, 2015 9:30:40 AM

A Goosmann Law Firm client was just recently issued a favorable ruling from his Iowa Supreme Court appeal. The client, an Iowa-based manufacturer, sued a New Jersey company in Iowa state court for violations of both Iowa’s unfair competition law and its federal counterpart, the Lanham Act. On appeal, the New Jersey company claimed it did not have sufficient contacts with the state of Iowa and, therefore, could not be sued in Iowa. The Iowa Supreme Court disagreed, finding that the New Jersey company’s various activities in Iowa, including among other things, its purchase of products from an Iowa-based co-defendant in the lawsuit, were sufficient to require the New Jersey company to answer the allegations in an Iowa courtroom. A complete copy of the Iowa Supreme Court appeal and it’s ruling can be found HERE.
