Settlements & Judgments

Previous Results in California

Many builders and developers are not anxious to advertise the amount of a large settlement and are more comfortable entering into a settlement that contains a confidentiality provision that prevents the homeowners and the attorneys from telling people about the settlement amount. Imagine a neighborhood of tract homes where one home gets a $750,000 settlement. What happens next? All of the other homeowners in the neighborhood rally the homeowners and file another suit. This kind of precedent is dangerous for the builder and makes further settlements much more difficult for everyone involved. For this reason, an exemplar of settlements obtained below are not disclosed by case name.
