In Re:  Legacy Painting and Wallcovering, Inc. v. The Potts Company and Travelers Casualty and Surety Company of America, Superior Court of Rockdale

Atlanta, GA - Rockdale Superior Court.  Russell H. Hippe, representing the Plaintiff, secured a jury verdict in a four day jury trial in Rockdale County in the maximum amount, $139,408.  This was a breach of contract case involving a commercial development know as Sojourn as Cuscowilla at Lake Oconee.  

The Plaintiff Legacy Painting, a quality painting subcontractor that operates in the N. Georgia area, was contracted by Defendant the Potts Company to provided commercial painting services for the project.  Legacy alleged that the Potts Company had breached the contract and owed them $139,000.  The Defendants claimed that the contract, which they had prepared, allowed them to “substitute Legacy’s workforce” and argued the Plaintiff’ work was substandard and was entitled to no monies at all.

The Defendants were represented by Super Lawyer George C. Reid, an excellent attorney with decades of experience.  As the Plaintiff in a conservative county, Mr. Hippe had an uphill battle but managed to prevail.  Mr. Reid commented after the trial that “Rusty kicked my tail”.  The owner of Legacy Jimmy Stone said publicly “Rusty did a great job, he was fantastic”.
