With Summit’s Help, Hundred Construction Workers Received Wages by the Spring Festival
Collecting construction payments was painful and a time consuming process for Donghua Construction Co. (DHC). Back to 2012, SUMMIT filed a lawsuit against Shuaineng Co. (SNC) on behalf of DHC to collect overdue construction payments. After 3 years battles, Changzhou Intermediate People’s Court upheld the claims of DHC, and granted DHC preferential rights to obtain payments from auction of the building DHC had constructed for SNC.
After the judgement went into effect, SNC applied for a judicial review but overruled by Jiangsu People’s Supreme Court.
SUMMIT then requested to enforce the effective judgement, Changzhou Jintan People’s Court (Jintan Court) reconfirmed the preferential right of DHC.
However, nothing good comes easily. One of the creditors of SNC, Zhongcheng Co., filed a motion against the enforcement distribution arrangement made by Jintan Court. After the motion was examined and ruled by the primary court, Changzhou Intermediate People’s Court - the appeal court , finally dismissed the motion on Feb. 1st 2018, rewarding DHC a completely victory.
The construction payment was crucial to hundred unpaid construction workers as the Spring Festival approaching. The enforcement department of Jintan Court thus paid great attention to the case and ensured the construction payment was received before the Spring Festival. The construction workers went home with their wages for the Festival happily.
SUMMIT once again interpreted the fairness and justice of law with action. Not only did SUMMIT protect the legal rights of the clients, but guarded the interests of the construction workers as well.
