SHS Client rented a newly rebuilt home in Laguna Beach. Shortly after moving into the property, she discovered what she believed to be mold growing in one of the cabinets in the garage of the home, and she reported it to the property manager. Defendants hired a handyman to address the issue.
Plaintiff filed suit against the landlord and property manager alleging that they failed to take appropriate measures to fix the property until after our client moved out.  The jury agreed and issued a verdict in favor of our client.  The landlord and property management company appealed, but eventually dismissed their appeal resulting in an award (with interest and costs) of over $500,000.
