Disposed: visiting judge awards plaintiff damages in converted firearm suit

By John Suayan | Oct 22, 2018

GALVESTON – Just two months after it was filed, a lawsuit claiming that a San Leon resident failed to receive his order for a converted firearm from a New Jersey man ended in the plaintiff’s favor.

As previously reported in The Southeast Texas Record, Micah Kehtel brought the breach of contract suit against Massimo V. Gera last Aug. 14 in the Galveston County Court at Law No. 3. Kehtel accused Gera of not delivering the weapon which court documents described as “an Auto Mag gun with a complete .44 AMP, 16 1/2-in. barrel assembly with accelerator and commercial rear sights together with a one grip lug assembly, complete stock assembly with steel butt plate, forend iron and matching grips.”

Records show that visiting judge Roy Quintanilla issued a final judgment on Oct. 19 ordering Gera to pay Kehtel $61,500 in addition to $2,044 in attorney’s fees and expenses. The plaintiff previously submitted a motion for entry of judgment.

Gera reportedly did not provide an original answer to Kehtel’s suit.
