Civil Issue: Real estate litigation
Case: Karyn Maio v. Delores Hopkins
Result: Five-figure Settlement
In this case, the defendant breached an agreement to sell real estate to Ms. Maio. Karyn sued under the doctrine of specific performance, a contract remedy that requests a judgment to compel the seller to perform her promise to sell the land identified in the contract for sale.
Haslam negotiated a settlement involving a five-figure payment to Ms. Maio. She pocketed the judgment money, got her deposit on the contract back, and walked away 5 figures richer.
