Summary Judgment Affirmed in Favor of Engineering Firm
Kent Stair and Ryan Wilhelm successfully defended an engineering firm in an environmental engineering malpractice case. Plaintiffs contended that the engineering firm committed professional malpractice by failing to properly monitor and report hazardous chemicals found in the soil and underground water at a commercial site. Kent and Ryan not only defended the merits of the claim, but established that Plaintiff’s claims, which Plaintiffs’ expert valued at more than $2.4 million, were barred by the statute of limitations. The trial court granted summary judgment in favor of the engineering firm, which was affirmed on appeal by the Georgia Court of Appeals.
