Attorney Michael Duddy Wins an Attachment Order on Behalf of a Maine Hospital in Action Agains a Nurse for Failing to Repay Education Loan.

A Maine hospital extended over $20,000 in educational benefits to a hospital employee to obtain a nursing degree, in exchange for a promise to work at the hospital for five years after obtaining the degree. The nurse left employment early, and refused to repay the unforgiven portion of her educational loan. The hospital brought an action in Superior Court for breach of contract, costs, and attorney fees. The Superior Court agreed with Attorney Duddy that the hospital was more likely than not to prevail on the merits, and granted Attorney Duddy’s motion for attachment and attachment on trustee process.
