RMB delivers another jury trial victory in two-week construction defect trial

Trial attorney Allen Eraut obtained a defense verdict for a roofing subcontractor in a Washington County construction defect case.  Plaintiffs asked the jury for $833,000.   The case was unusual in that the general contractor declared bankruptcy shortly before trial, and the Plaintiffs were successful in severing the claim against the general contractor from the case against the subcontractors.  After the other subcontractors settled, Plaintiffs proceeded to trial against RMB’s client only.  Given its bankrupt status, the general contractor was not present at trial and was not included on the verdict form.  Despite a wave of additional destructive testing shortly before trial focusing on RMB’s client’s work, the jury ruled against the Plaintiffs on both the negligence and breach of warranty claims.  The case was tried to a twelve member jury in front of Washington County Circuit Court Judge Charles Bailey.
