The system was alleged to be defective and the general contractor of the project repaired it and then filed suit against the manufacturer and others. The suit sought in excess of $2 million in damages. Prior to the discovery phase, which was going to involve over 40 depositions and a number of experts, we suggested mediation.
The case ended up settling for a total of $200,000. Our carrier’s contribution was only $50,000.
Once again, the case was resolved under very favorable terms and avoided the costs and fees involved with a lengthy discovery process.
