Window installation has been a large source of litigation in the construction defect practice in the general Portland area over the last seven years. Attorney Paul Sheely recently defended a subcontractor during a 5 week trial that took place in Washington County. Paul represented a framing subcontractor who was involved in the installation of over 1,000 windows at the Fountaincourt Condominium project in Beaverton, Oregon. The Homeowners Association Developers’ attorney targeted the framing subcontractor alleging improper installation of the windows. Paul’s trial team convinced the jury that the window installers installed the windows in accordance with sound construction principles and in a manner directed by the developer and general contractor. The jury returned a verdict for less than one-tenth of the amount sought by the developers.
