Claims Dismissed in Complex Construction Defect Matter.
The defense filed a motion for partial discontinuance that was granted, dismissing all claims against our client in a complex, construction defect matter. The plaintiff, a homeowners’ association, filed suit against a number of defendants alleging significant defects and deficiencies in construction performed at a residential community. The defendants joined a number of additional defendant subcontractors, including our client, in the litigation. In our motion for partial discontinuance, we argued that the pleadings did not allege any specific allegations of wrongdoing by our client, and the evidence and expert reports likewise did not include any allegation that our client’s work was defective. The court granted the defense's motion and dismissed all claims against our client.
