NEW ORLEANS – A limited liability company is seeking damages over claims that it was not properly represented by its legal team.
Element Pictures LLC and Adam Rosenfelt filed a suit against Simon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn LLP and Robert Redfearn Jr. in the Orleans Parish Civil District Court on June 10.
According to the claim, the plaintiffs hired the defendants for the sake of representation in a legal disagreement facing the plaintiff. The suit states that the defendants took actions without gaining the consent of the plaintiffs and therefore breached their role and acted in a negligent manner.
The defendants are accused of negligence through failure to obtain the consent of their client, the plaintiffs, failure to follow the instructions laid out by the plaintiff and failing to act in the best interest of the plaintiff.
The plaintiffs are seeking an unspecified amount in damages. They are represented by Joseph S. Piacun, Thomas A. Gennusa and Reid S. Uzee of Gennusa, Piacun and Ruli of Metairie.
The case has been assigned to Division L Judge Kern A. Reese.
