Westchester County Court Upholds Indemnification Action Commenced by Firm’s Client

In a case seeking contractual indemnification pursuant to the terms of an agency agreement, the defendants attempted to dismiss the case, arguing the agreement’s indemnification provision was vague and did not prescribe the broad duties they were being asked to fulfill by the plaintiff. The Supreme Court of Westchester County, however, sided with the Firm’s client and denied the motion to dismiss. The Court rejected the defendants’ argument that the indemnification provision did not clearly indicate a definitive intention to indemnify due to its failure to specify the precise nature of defendants’ actual indemnification obligations. Eric J. Mandell represented the Firm’s client in this case. Decided on May 8, 2023.
