  • USDC: Northern District of California
  • Defendant Owner
  • Represented the owner, who was fraudulently induced to acquire real estate for development, in an environmental matter involving litigation against both the seller and those persons who caused the contamination. We also represented the owner in an administrative enforcement action brought by the Regional Water Quality Control Board.

  • In the latter administrative action, our client was deemed secondarily liable, thus imposing the clean-up obligation on the other parties. Following our filing of a motion for summary judgment in the litigation against the other parties, one of the two defendants conceded liability. The District Court then subsequently ruled in favor of our client regarding the liability of the second defendant, and further granted rescission of the sales transaction based upon fraud. The case was ultimately settled with a very substantial payment made to our client.
