CONSTRUCTION DEFECT LITIGATION
Most recently, we obtained a defense verdict for our general contractor -owner client after 3 ½ months in trial against the principal of one of the largest plaintiff firms specializing in construction defect litigation. This case concerned soils, HVAC, and real estate liability claims. Our jury not only returned with a defense verdict for the construction defect allegations but also made a finding of fraud, awarded damages of $171,526.70 and $1.5 million in punitive damages.
We received a defense verdict on behalf of our general contractor client regarding the allegedly defective earthquake repairs to a 268 unit condominium complex in Calabasas, California. In conjunction with co-counsel regarding its affirmative claims, our client also recovered the monies owed to it for the reconstruction work performed and $268,000 in punitive damages.
The third largest homeowners’ association in California alleged defective earthquake repairs after it received over $20 million from its insurer to make the repairs. Our general contractor client resolved this matter for a drastically reduced amount similar amount to what was paid by the painter.
