Wally Zimolong Obtains $1,364,477.67 Summary Judgment Verdict

On July 13, 2017, Wally Zimolong of Zimolong, LLC  obtained a $1,367,477.67 judgment on behalf of his client, a financial services company, in a contested summary judgment motion hearing.  Wally’s client, a publicly traded company, was the buyer in a multi-million dollar loan purchase agreement.  The defendant/seller, also a financial services company, made certain representations and warranties regarding the underwriting standards of the loans that were the subject of the agreement.  Specifically, the seller represented that the loans complied with Fannie Mae requirements.

After several of the loans were found not to have met Fannie Mae guidelines, Wally demanded that the seller repurchase those loans pursuant to the indemnification clause in the agreement.  When the seller refused, Wally initiated suit in New Jersey state court.  The seller contested the suit and claimed it had no obligation to repurchase the loans under the terms of the agreement.  Wally moved for summary judgment, which the seller opposed raising several arguments to the Court.

The Court requested argument on the matter.  After several hours of argument, Wally prevailed and the Court granted his motion in its entirety and entered judgment in favor of his client and against the seller in the amount of $1,367,477.67. Moreover, because the agreement contained an attorneys fee shifting provision, the Court also granted his motion that attorneys fees be added to the judgment.
