A more than three-year long case between Viracon and a New York-based developer regarding payment for insulating glass units (IGUs) has come to a close.

In March, the U.S. District Court in the Southern District of New York ruled defendants J&L Curtain Wall, Cappelli Enterprises, Louis R. Cappelli and Louis R. Cappelli Family Limited Partnership II owed Viracon more than $1 million for custom IGUs delivered to them in 2009.

Viracon was also seeking recovery of storage fees totaling approximately $600,000, as well as attorney’s fees and prejudgment interest totaling more than $1.3 million. These claims were slated for trial, but the sides reached a settlement, according to court documents dated in June.

When contacted about the case, a Viracon representative said the company “does not comment on litigation issues whether pending or concluded.” The defendants’ attorney Patrick M. Reilly told USGNN.com™ he is unable to share the details of the settlement.

Viracon filed the initial complaint in 2013, and litigation had been ongoing since.

According to a memorandum filed by Viracon last September, in the mid-2000s, Cappelli, a real estate developer, was seeking a “substantial share” in a resort and casino project in the Catskills in New York. This project, according to the court filing, would involve his construction company, George A. Fuller Co., and J&L, a curtainwall subcontractor he set up.

Viracon claimed Cappelli ordered the more than $1 million worth of IGUs without first securing financing, and that Viracon wasn’t Cappelli’s only creditor at the time. After the project was shelved, Viracon said Cappelli held “creditors at bay by shifting around assets and drawing out litigation.”

The original complaint was filed in March of 2013, and the parties filed a series of amended complaints, answers and motions before a 45-day stay period in late 2013. They were unable to reach a settlement during that period and proceeded with litigation. The case was closed on June 30, 2016.
