The Naumann Law Firm, PC announced today that it recovered $1,607,500.00 in damages on behalf of the Anchorage Lane Homeowners Association in a construction defect lawsuit.
The firm filed the lawsuit on November 4, 2014 in San Diego County Superior Court, Case No. 37-2014-00037570 on behalf of the Anchorage Homeowners Association (“Association”) against the developer, ANCHORAGE LANE II, LLC, and other responsible contractors/subcontractors.
The Association alleged damages to this (seven) 7 unit luxury condominium complex primarily related to a defective fire sprinkler system and water intrusion at the subterranean parking garage. The defective fire sprinkler system caused water leaks which resulted in significant property damage. Additionally, the water intrusion at the below-ground parking garage would require the Association to incur significant costs related to substantial waterproofing repairs.
William H. Naumann and Loren K. Shiu argued that the developer was responsible for the defective fire sprinkler and underground waterproofing system because the developer hired and also supervised the work of its subcontractors. As a result of the construction deficiencies, Mr. Naumann and Mr. Shiu asserted that the developer was in breach of California Civil Code § 896, et sq. and was also liable to the Association under the theory of strict liability, negligence, and breach of implied warranty. Following multiple mediations and depositions, Mr. Naumann and Mr. Shiu successfully obtained a settlement for their clients in the amount of $1,607,500.00.
William H. Naumann and Loren K. Shiu of The Naumann Law Firm, PC were the handling attorneys.
