"With a two-judge dissent, we can appeal to the Court of Appeals as of right, and we are definitely going there," Jeffrey Jannuzzo, counsel for the plaintiffs, said in an email. "We believe the court erred in not applying the six-year statute, because the wrong of attorney-deceit originates at English common law, and is not a new liability. If the case is reinstated, the majority's holding that Corwin committed actionable deceit under Sec. 487 will be devastating."
Simpson Thacher & Bartlett partner Roy Reardon, who represents Greenberg Traurig and Corwin, said he agreed with the decision and was confident that should there be an appeal, the majority decision would be affirmed.
