Significant Matters

Assisted in the successful defense of a national poultry producer against a Clean Water Act citizen’s suit in a three-week-long bench trial before Judge William M.

She supported the trial team by, among other things, authoring motions in limine, preparing witnesses, drafting witness examination outlines, interfacing with technology vendors, coordinating with courtroom personnel, and helping to develop the defense’s expert witness testimony.
Helped a national healthcare HUD financing lender secure a $10.4 million jury verdict against Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC for unjust enrichment in the Circuit Court of Maryland for Montgomery County. The case involved complex issues arising out of a real estate loan made for the acquisition of a nursing home chain, subsequent securitization of those loans, sale of the commercial mortgage-backed securities, and intended HUD-guaranteed refinancing of the real estate loan. Ms. Carey has been involved in all facets of this litigation, from filing the complaint to post-trial motions.
Assisted a trial team representing a national healthcare HUD financing lender seeking $145 million in damages during a two-week-long bench trial before Judge John W. Noble in Delaware’s Court of Chancery. Ms. Carey supported the expert witness efforts, including preparation of a plaintiff’s damages expert and preparation for the cross-examinations of defendants’ damages and commercial mortgage-backed securities experts. The Court of Chancery’s decision is pending.
Helped conduct an internal investigation of allegations of the misuse of government funds in Baltimore County, Maryland.
Participated in defending multiple financial institutions, in both state and federal courts, against claims by consumers alleging fraudulent practices in the extension of credit, wrongful handling of deposits or assessment of fees, and violation of the Maryland Consumer Protection Act.
