Court Favors FAC in Burger King Lawsuit
"We consider the judge's ruling to be a tremendous victory because it sends a clear message to Mr. Hawkins that the court will not tolerate his attempts to delay this action and avoid entry of a significant monetary judgment against him,'' said Howard Wolfson, outside legal counsel for FAC with the Manhattan-based law firm of Morrison, Cohen, Singer and Weinstein.
As part of the ruling, the court temporarily stayed execution of the judgment and gave Hawkins until October 26 to seek relief from the judgment. Mr. Hawkins was served notice of the lawsuit in July for failure to repay monies lent to him by FAC.
