$6.1 Million Judgment in Land Dispute Trial
In June 2017, Edward Huguenin, James Bothwell and Robert Kahn received a Final Statement of Decision in connection with a three week trial in San Diego County, awarding the Firm’s client over $6.1M in damages. Messrs. Huguenin, Bothwell and Kahn represented one of the Firm’s largest clients, Meritage Homes, as a plaintiff in a complex land dispute venued in San Diego County. Meritage had purchased property from a private developer in 2013, and was forced to sue when the seller refused to satisfy certain conditions of approval that would have allowed Meritage to proceed with development on its property. The firm obtained a judgment in the amount of $6.1M, and with a right to seek its fees and costs as the prevailing party.
