Washington, D.C. Court Rules for Building Owner in Construction Defect Dispute
September 04, 2014
Dale Kingman and Haley Krug represented a large, multi-employer pension fund with significant real estate holdings in a multi-million dollar construction defect suit in Washington D.C. After a trial extending over three months, a superior court judge found in favor of the fund, the building’s owner. The court awarded significant damages to repair leaks and resulting water damage throughout the building’s envelope, caused by the defective work of subcontractors. Dale and Haley also obtained substantial recoveries for the owner through pre-trial settlements with additional subcontractors.
