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.
