US court upholds $505,000 Dutch judgment against Van Hoekelen Greenhouses
For the damage sustained, the Dutch court awarded $505,000 plus interest and the District Judge Richard Caputo of the Middle District of Pennsylvania granted summary judgment in favor of Geerlings. He recognizes the Dutch court's award as valid in the state under Pennsylvania's Uniform Foreign Money Judgment Recognition Act.
However Van Hoekelen does not agree. The greenhouse argues that the Dutch court's judgement would allow Geerlings to recover more damages than was sustained. And besides that, Van Hoekelen claims that Geerlings presented inaccurate billing spreadsheets to the court.
And Capito does not accept the argument of Van Hoekeren. In the article, published in the The Legal Intelligencer, it is explained in depth why Van Hoekelen's argument is not accepted.
Van Hoekelen Greenhouses
Lori and Cok Van Hoekelen started the original 3 1/2-acre greenhouse facility on Plant Road in 1988. Since then, the company has maintained an exceptional growth pattern in both sales and expansion of facilities. Currently, they are operating on two 7.5 acre greenhouses in Kline Township. Van Hoekelen grows and distributes many types of seasonal plants and flowers such as tulips, hyacinths, mums, poinsettias, cactus, etc. In addition, VHG has a Freight Department, which includes dispatchers, to keep the company trucks running year-round with outside loads during the off-season period.
