Vera Townhomes Homeowners' Association v. Vera Townhomes
In a construction defect case, Klein & Wilson represented a homeowners' association consisting of 48 condominium units. The developers and contractors denied there were construction defects and refused to pay anything. After conducting a "show-and-tell" presentation of the defects at the project and inviting all the defendants to destructive testing, the defendants recognized they would be found liable and paid Klein & Wilson's client approximately $1.5 million.
Klein & Wilson's client was forced to sue his homeowners' association, which refused to allow him to build on plans it had previously approved. Klein & Wilson attempted to settle the case early through mediation, but the homeowners' association stubbornly refused to budge an inch. At trial, the court found in favor of Klein & Wilson's client and awarded not only substantial damages, but also the majority of the client's legal fees, finding that the quality of representation had been superior.
