The firm recently achieved another significant litigation victory as a result of a recent Louisiana 4th Circuit Court of Appeal decision, “FIE, LLC v. New Jax Condominium Ass’n and Earl Weber, Jr., — So.3d —-, 2018 WL 992520, 2016-0843 (La.App. 4 Cir. 2/21/18)”. The unanimous ruling affirmed, in all respects, a $1.2 Million verdict obtained on behalf of the client following a week-long trial in the Civil District Court of Orleans Parish. Larry Pugh tried the case with co-counsel, Stanley Cohn of the Lugenbuhl firm, on behalf of a condominium owner against the New Jax Condo Association. Our client sought damages for failure to timely and adequately repair the common roof structure. Pugh and the trial team prevailed at trial in March of 2016, and the jury agreed that our client had suffered “loss of use” damages associated w/ the negligent repair of the roof. The Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court judgment in every respect, including the award of interest, and addressed other significant legal issues, including its affirmation of the right of the client to bring a tort claim, rejecting the Association’s contention that the obligations arose solely out of the Condo agreements.
