We successfully obtained a prejudgment writ of execution in an environmental subrogation case. This case involved a claim for contribution towards investigation and remediation expenses incurred by our client at the home of its insureds. Forensic age-dating revealed that the contamination predated the insureds’ purchase of the property. We sued the prior owner who had developed the property and had taken steps to conceal the contamination. On that basis, we successfully obtained a pre-judgment writ of attachment on an unrelated piece of real property owned by the defendant in order to prevent the defendant from fraudulently transferring ownership to avoid an eventual judgment. After entry of the writ of attachment, the case settled for 100 percent of the remediation expenses.
