An Engineering Firm In A Large Multi-party Action In Federal Court

The owners of a shopping center filed suit alleging that the center’s foundation was settling because of the use of “fly ash” fill material. The suit sought approximately $14 million dollars in damages. Taking the lead among some 10 other professionals and subcontractors, we sought and received dismissal of the lawsuit against our clients before being forced to engage in a very protracted and expensive discovery process. No monies were paid in settlement and the attorney’s fees and costs were very limited.
