After nearly two years of litigation and a 2½ week jury trial, a San Diego jury returned a 12-0 defense verdict in a habitability case involving claims of mold, vermin infestation and building defects. J. Paul Lewis with the law firm of Wood Smith Henning & Berman LLP represented the defendant.

Plaintiffs Jacquelyn Jaquez and her two minor children sought recovery of damages for bodily injuries, property damage, rent abatement and emotional distress, as well as punitive damages, stemming from their tenancy at a single family residence in Pacific Beach owned and managed by Defendant Paul Trudell. Plaintiffs accused Defendant of failing to appropriately address and remediate conditions in the home.
