Improper Compacted Soil

Development: Confidential

Client: Owners of 5 single-family homes

Developer: Confidential

Location: Salton City, California

Settlement: $92,500.00

Year: 2012

The JCL Law Firm acted as co-counsel for Plaintiffs in this five-home construction defect action for damaged caused by isolated soil movement. The action involved a developer defendant no longer in business, and an insurance policy that excluded claims for damage caused by soil movement. Nevertheless, Attorney Lapuyade negotiated this favorable settlement for his clients prior to trial and prior to deposition discovery.
