Victory in Commercial Division

On October 8, 2010, Justin Sher successfully resisted an application to attach the assets of its client, W&M Import & Export Ltd., an apparel firm based in Brooklyn, New York. The attachment, sought by a national retail chain, would have frozen W&M Import’s bank accounts and threatened the viability of its business. Upon reviewing Mr. Sher’s submission, the plaintiff withdrew its application, and Justice Fried of the Commercial Division vacated the temporary restraining order. Read the order here.
