Fine-Cut Diamonds Corp. v. Eliahu Shetrit, 22 Misc. 3d 1117(A), 880 N.Y.S. 2d 872
In this action, MHH&H represented a diamond dealer against its former salesman to whom it had consigned tens of millions of dollars worth of diamonds and jewelry over a period of several years. The former salesman defended on the various grounds, including that all of the consigned goods had been accounted for either through sales or returns. After a two week bench trial, the court rejected all of the saleman’s defenses and awarded the judgment to the diamond dealer in excess of $8 million together with interest thereon, bringing the total amount of the judgment to over $10 million.
