Construction defect lawsuit arising from property damage at a custom-built single-family residence with a solar powered roof. After multiple rounds of mediation failed to settle the case after 1.5 years, ACTS proceeded to litigate the action towards trial. As trial approached, the defendants sought to delay the trial, but ACTS convinced the judge to keep the initial trial date. Shortly after taking the deposition of Plaintiffs’ construction defect expert, the defendants re-engaged in settlement discussions through the mediator. As a result, ACTS recovered partial settlements with the general contractor and subcontractors that total in the low seven figures, and is currently set to try the case against the remaining defendant.
