Fishkin Lucks Obtains Voluntary Dismissal in Bay County, Florida Construction Litigation

Fishkin Lucks and local Florida counsel secured a voluntary dismissal today of product liability claims brought in the Circuit Court of Florida, Bay County, against our client, a leading provider of integrated exterior wall systems and products. Plaintiff, the homeowners association of the Shores of Panama Resort located in Panama Beach, had asserted claims against numerous construction professionals and contractors alleging that they negligently designed and constructed the resort; and against our client, which manufactured the stucco and finish coat applied to the resort’s exterior building envelope, alleging that the finish coat was defective, causing the stucco to blister and delaminate. Following discovery that stretched over 2 years, which included the production of tens of thousands of pages of construction documents, designs and drawings, 25+ depositions and a lengthy mediation at which all of the other defendants eventually settled, the Firm and local counsel moved for summary judgment. Upon receipt of the Motion, plaintiff voluntarily dismissed all claims against our client.
