Summary Judgment for HTMS in Fraud Case

We represented HealthTech Management Services, Inc. (HTMS) in exercising its rights as a victim under the federal Crime Victims Rights Acts in a federal criminal prosecution and in litigating a related civil lawsuit. HTMS had been victimized when one of its employees, Paul Cardwell, together with co-conspirator Michael Plake, defrauded a client of HTMS out of more than $847,000. We led the internal investigation by HTMS, disclosed the crime to federal law-enforcement, liaised with federal law-enforcement throughout the resulting criminal prosecution of Cardwell and Plake, and conducted related federal civil litigation that resulted in summary judgment against Cardwell and his co-conspirator and ultimately judgments of $3.5 million and $2 million against Cardwell and Plake, respectively.
