MONTGOMERY COUNTY JURY RESOLVES DISPUTE

Following a two-day jury trial in the Circuit Court for Montgomery County, in Rockville, Maryland, a verdict was entered on June 6, 2017, in a lawsuit between two Silver Spring Ethiopian businesswomen. Haregewohyen Azalew, represented by Joseph A. Blaszkow, of Alexandria, Virginia, had sued Zenebech Mengitsu, for failing to make periodic payments under a Management Agreement by which Azalew had hired Mengitsu to manage the operations of the Wesenyelesh International Market in Silver Spring, Maryland. Mengitsu had responded to the Azalew lawsuit with a counterclaim accusing Azalew of breach of contract, theft of property and monies, and fraud.

The jury verdict awarded damages to Plaintiff Azalew in the amount of $17,600.00, and rejected the Mengistu counterclaim. According to Blaszkow, the verdict was for the full amount that Azalew had sought, and completely vindicates her claims. Ms. Azalew has been the proprietor of the Wesenyelesh International Market since 2007.
