Corleto Wins Defense Verdict for Builder

September 4, 2009
Anthony Corleto (Partner-Connecticut) obtained a defense verdict in a trespass/property damage claim brought by the owner of a Greenwich, Connecticut estate home against the owner of the adjacent property and his builder. The case was venued in Connecticut Superior Court, Stamford.

The plaintiff claimed that the construction company, while doing construction work on the adjacent property owned by the co-defendant, trespassed on her property, damaging a vintage rock wall and disrupting the grade. She previously lost a suit against the neighbor-defendant and the owner of the subdivision for the destruction of trees along the boundary between the co-defendant and plaintiff’s homes.

Mr. Corleto successfully argued that the plaintiff failed to meet her burden of proof and that she was motivated by her perceived loss of privacy.
