Most importantly, I am glad that we were able to prove that the intentional deviation from the plans amounted to fraud on the part of the defendants.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 05, 2013
According to the court records in this multi-party litigation filed in Los Angeles Superior Court (Case No. SC107238), Mr. Sarbaz assisted in persuading the Court that the contractors engaged in negligent and fraudulent conduct by intentionally deviating from the approved architectural plans for the Bel-Air property.
The court documents filed indicate that Mr. Sarbaz presented evidence that one of the contractors was unlicensed, thereby allowing the Court to award his client damages equaling all monies that had been previously paid to that contractor in the sum of $175,000.00. In addition, the court’s final judgment confirms Mr. Sarbaz removed the $38,000.00 mechanic’s lien which had been wrongfully placed against his client’s property by the defendant subcontractor and went on to obtain an award against that same subcontractor in the principal sum of $254,205.17, plus interest and costs.
Mr. Sarbaz was quoted as saying that “This type of litigation could be avoided if property owners make sure to consult with their attorneys regarding the terms of a construction contract before starting a real estate construction project. With that said, I am ecstatic with the final judgment obtained for my client. Most importantly, I am glad that we were able to prove that the intentional deviation from the plans amounted to fraud on the part of the defendants.”
Mr. Sarbaz’s law practice focuses on 1) business law and litigation, 2) real estate contracts and litigation, and 3) financial securities litigation.
