CANYON VILLAS, Las Vegas, Nevada

After victory at trial, Berding|Weil partner Scott Barton successfully obtained a favorable decision from the Nevada Supreme Court in answer to defendant's post-trial appeals. This case went to trial against one non-settling defendant after Barton had already obtained settlements from other defendants in excess of $2,500,000 for construction defects in this 256 unit project located in Clark County, Nevada. The single non-settling subcontractor defendant offered less than $50,000 before trial in which significant liability was alleged against it. The jury returned a verdict against the subcontractor in excess of $1,000,000. The defendant appealed, and in April 2013 the Nevada Supreme Court affirmed the jury's verdict, and in addition directed the trial court to add an award of attorney's fees in favor of Mr. Barton's client.

SOLANO COUNTY JURY VERDICT FOR HOTEL OWNER

The owners of a hotel in Solano County turned to Berding & Weil partner Scott Barton when the general contractor for their new hotel repeatedly refused to respond to their pleas for help with massive water intrusion and damage that was jeopardizing their investment. Two years after filing the case with ongoing and continuing damage, and with only nominal settlement offers from the defendants, partners Scott Barton and Chad Thomas brought the case to a Solano County jury. Following a six week trial in March and April of this year, the jury awarded $3,800,000 to Berding|Weil's clients, finding liability on the part of the general contractor and three subcontractors. The jury award represents nearly one-hundred percent of the damages claimed by on behalf of the owner.
