After a week long trial a Massachusetts jury returned a defense verdict to Boston partner, Jay Gregory in an architectural malpractice case. The plaintiff, the owner of a 180-unit apartment building, sued its architect claiming to have incurred approximately $375,000 in damages as a result of the architect’s negligent design of a $10,000,000 renovation project. The key issue in the case was whether the architect’s specification of sliding glass doors complied with applicable code provisions. (Jay warned the jury in his opening statement that the trial was not going to be sexy or anything they would see in a TV legal drama.) The jury understood the issues and rejected all of the plaintiff’s claims. Jay was helped immensely in this trial effort by Boston associate Lee Holland and Hartford paralegal Miles England.
