Discrimination Case Tossed Out by Court Soto Law Group, P.A.

Jury Orders Contractor to Pay Medical Facility Owner 2 Million Dollars

Written By Oscar Soto

Partners, Felena R. Talbott, Esq., and Oscar E. Soto, Esq., successfully tried to Jury Verdict a post-completion construction defects action against the General Contractor of a 25 million dollar medical facility in Miami Dade County, Florida. The Owner argued that certain items of work were not properly constructed nor repaired during the warranty period. The cost of remediation exceeded 2 million dollars. The General Contractor asserted that the work was inspected and approved despite contemporaneous project records identifying deficiencies in the work. The claims at trial centered around improper supervision, coordination and construction of a below-grade multi-floor garage and the HVAC system at the project. The case was settled on appeal.
