Firm wins jury verdict for HOA

On Friday, a Douglas County jury returned a verdict in favor of one of The Witt Law Firm's clients, a Lone Tree homeowner association seeking to recover the cost of rebuilding a road in its community. The evidence showed that the community's developer had not prepared the road's subgrade properly in the late 1990's, which caused the association to incur significant repair expenses in 2011.

The developer argued that the statute of limitations precluded recovery, but the association successfully established that the developer had not relinquished ownership of the road until shortly before the association performed the repairs in question.

Jesse Witt and Marci Achenbach represented the association at trial.
