Attorney obtained dismissal of a professional malpractice claim against our defendant engineering firm
Attorney obtained dismissal of a professional malpractice claim against our defendant engineering firm. Defendant was joined as an additional defendant by the school district in a lawsuit between multiple contractors regarding the installation of an artificial turf playing surface at the high school. The primary defendant, the artificial turf installer, alleged that our defendant negligently misrepresented the existing conditions on the original playing field and improperly instructed a subcontractor to add more stone to the underlying surface during installation of the turf field. After the conclusion of discovery, defense attorney filed a Motion for Summary Judgment and argued that the facts overwhelmingly demonstrated that defendant properly represented the existing conditions of the field and did not have any authority to advise the subcontractor to add stone to the playing field subsurface. Upon receipt of the motion the parties in the case then agreed to sign a Stipulation of Dismissal.
