Pence Wins Big For Michigan Mining Company
Posted Under General

A Dickinson County jury awarded Pence & Numinen client Michigan Mining more than half a million dollars after an intense trial earlier this month.  The case began as a multimillion dollar lawsuit filed by Melvin R. Silta and his corporate demolition company against Michigan Mining over an alleged breach of contract.  Silta claimed he was owed over six million dollars for work he was hired to do at a now-defunct Upper Peninsula mine site.  Michigan Mining filed a counter-claim for breach of contract.  The jury rendered its verdict on the ninth day of trial awarding Silta nothing for its claims and awarding Michigan Mining a verdict for almost $600,000 on its counter-claims against Silta.  Michigan Mining was represented by Steve Pence and attorney Daniel Jaspen.
