Julander, Brown & Bollard successfully defended an indemnity cross-complaint against its client, Arlon LLC, who was also awarded all of its attorney’s fees incurred in the defense. Arlon sold its vinyl manufacturing business to Arlon Graphics in 2011. As part of the Asset Purchase Agreement, Graphics agreed to assume responsibility under the existing building lease. When Graphics vacated the building in 2016, the landlord sued it for $5 Million in needed repairs. Graphics cross-complained against Arlon for indemnity under the Agreement. In his December 21, 2018 ruling, Judge John Kennedy held that Arlon had no liability whatsoever and also awarded Arlon almost $500,000 in attorney’s fees based on Arlon’s interpretation of the indemnity agreement.
