Central Ohio Couple Wins 3.1 million dollar suit

by Maureen McCabe on February 20, 2008

Speaking of affordable housing a Licking County couple won their lawsuit against a local builder.  The Cosners sued the builder in Franklin County because the builder is based in Franklin County. The home is in the Reynoldsburg area.

Due to water intrusion problems with the home, the home and all the families possesions were  covered in mold.

The Columbus Dispatch said :

“The list of problems included a defective foundation, an undersized heating and air-conditioning system, leaking plumbing and buckling roof shingles.”

Sadly the Cosner family is not likely to see the money awarded by the jury anytime soon… both the Columbus Dipatch and the Channel 10 News said the builder will likely appeal.

Channel 10 TV News  website said:

“But there is more than just one allegation against Maronda. The company has been the focus of 10 Investigates stories in the past for alleged deceptive practices and shoddy work, Aker reported.

Aker is a Channel 10 reporter. The TV station article online goes on:

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office confirmed that 52 complaints have been filed against Maronda in the past five years. “

I’ll be watching for your law firms name in the news. This is not a type of lawsuit I have seen in Central Ohio making the TV and newsapers previously.

The Cosners DID NOT win 3.1 Million. The news inaccurately reported the verdict. The verdict was only 1.7 Million and judgment on the verdict has not been entered and only a small portion of the verdict may actually be entered as judgment.

The press has really done a poor job reporting the facts in this case!
