Justin M. English recently obtained a bench trial verdict in favor of a GH&C client (the “Client”) following a trial in Superior Court in Middlesex County, New Jersey. The Client was a major New Jersey provider of senior housing and supportive services who was sued by Robert J. Triffin (“Triffin”), a litigant who has filed thousands of lawsuits arising out of the practice of buying dishonored checks, becoming a holder in due course, and then commencing litigation in order to collect the proceeds of the check. In fact, since 2004 Triffin has filed more than 15,000 lawsuits as an assignee of dishonored checks in New Jersey courts alone. See Triffin v. Am. Intern. Grp., Inc., 372 N.J. Super. 517, 521 n.2 (Super. Ct. App. Div. 2004) (At oral argument on appeal, Triffin indicated having filed over 15,000 lawsuits as assignee of dishonored checks.).
