On several occasions, we’ve won even though we may have technically lost. For example, in Jamaica Bay Riding Academy v Azulay, Civil Court, Kings County, the stable sued our client, seeking approximately $35,000 for four years of unpaid stable charges. Our defense: Our client was [only] liable for the missing the first month’s payment, after which the stable owner should have mitigated its damages by selling the horse at auction. Five days of trial later, the jury awarded the stable the sum of $1,710 (one month’s rent). We are very proud of that loss.
