After two congressional defeats, Carl Domino gets a win in court

Carl Domino in 2010.

It’s been nearly three years — and two congressional defeats — since Republican Carl Domino fired fundraising consultant Annie Marie Delgado.

Delgado filed a breach of contract suit against Domino on Oct. 29, 2014, less than a week before Domino lost his challenge to former U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Jupiter, in a Palm Beach-Treasure Coast congressional district.

A Circuit Court judge ruled in Domino’s favor in 2016 and, after Domino finished fourth in a six-candidate GOP congressional primary, ruled in November that Domino is entitled to $60,000 in legal fees from Delgado.

An appeals court upheld the Circuit Court ruling last month.

Domino could not be reached today and Delgado declined comment.

Domino, meanwhile, has filed a lawsuit against West Palm Beach consulting firm Public Concepts, which hired Delgado in 2014, seeking to recover the costs he incurred defending Delgado’s lawsuit. Two initial versions of Domino’s lawsuit have been dismissed.
