Description

Kent Stair, Paul Sperry and Patrick Norris obtained summary judgment for their client days before the start of a multi-week complex construction defect trial. The plaintiff Property Owners Association (POA) was seeking over $24 million in damages. The judge granted the motion on statute of limitations grounds, holding that the POA, despite being controlled by the Developer and not yet being turned over to the homeowners, had notice of potential claims against the Defendant more than three years before the “owner-controlled” POA sued.
