- Condominium HOA Prevails in Three–Week Jury Trial for Condo Defects
Ball Janik LLP represented a 62–unit condominium association located in Hillsboro, Oregon in prosecuting construction defect claims against the condominium’s original developer, general contractor, and subcontractors for damages arising out of defects in the condominium’s exterior building envelope.
- Construction Defect Case: Statute of Limitations and Ultimate Repose (Sunset Presbyterian Church)
Ball Janik LLP represented Sunset Presbyterian Church, a local Oregon church, that was suffering from water leaks which lead to the discovery of defective construction. The church did not discover these defects until approximately nine years after construction, and filed suit against the general contractor thereafter. On motion by the general contractor, the trial court dismissed the case based upon a very narrow contractual timing clause. Our attorneys took the case to the Oregon Court of Appeals, which reversed the decision of the trial court, holding that the general contractor could not rely upon the contractual timing clause when it had not fulfilled all necessary underlying obligations. The Oregon Supreme Court is now considering whether to review the case.
