Macdonald Devin wins summary judgment in Dallas for global geotechnical engineering firm

Greg Ziegler, Bill Gardner, Wes Davis, and Kate Valent all contributed to a team effort in winning summary judgment for Macdonald Devin’s global geotechnical engineering client.  The multi-school foundation defect case, pending in the 101st District Court, involved multiple parties and alleged over $8 million in actual damages.   After the client was joined to the lawsuit by the defendant architect by way of third-party action, Macdonald Devin pursued summary judgment immediately in an effort to avoid the client paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in defense costs or paying that amount in a cost-of-defense settlement at mediation.
