PARTNER TOM HUVAL SECURES $3.5 MILLION DOLLAR JUDGMENT AFTER TRIAL IN ALABAMA




On October 12, 2021, following a trial conducted in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Alabama, partner Tom Huval was able to obtain a judgment of $3,575,138.90 on behalf of his client, Grupo HGM Tecnologias Submarina, S.A., a Venezuelan oil company. Tom’s client had paid $1,266,046.32 to Energy Subsea, LLC to recover two sunken jets which had crashed off the coast of Venezuela. Energy Subsea did not recover the aircraft, and Tom was able to convince the court that not only did Energy Subsea not perform as it had promised pursuant to the contract, it had engaged in fraudulent conduct which justified the imposition of punitive damages, and also awarded Tom’s client all of its attorney’s fees and costs in an amount to be determined.
