Case Results

Jury finds in favor of E+B’s client.
E+B obtained a take-nothing judgment in favor of our client following a jury trial in which the opposition sought in excess of $1 million in damages.
Favorable settlement before verdict reached.
E+B secured a favorable settlement on behalf of a homebuilder after three days of trial testimony.
Product manufacturer successfully defended.
In separate, unrelated lawsuits, E+B secured a release on behalf of its client in exchange for a nuisance value settlement. E+B’s client manufactured a component part used in HVAC systems at a hotel and nursing home that allegedly sustained significant failures. The favorable settlements were possible due to E+B establishing that the alleged failures were due to the actions of others.
Summary judgment for manufacturer.
E+B obtained a summary judgment on behalf of a pipe manufacturer that was accused of producing defective casing that resulted in a well blowout and subsequent property damage and personal injury claims by hundreds of nearby residents.
Favorable settlement following loss of well.
E+B successfully negotiated a resolution of a multimillion dollar, multiparty case involving negligence, breach-of-contract, and breach-of-warranty claims asserted after casing failed during a hydraulic fracturing procedure, resulting in the loss of a well. Because the casing was purchased from a Chinese manufacturer and commingled with shipments from several different manufacturers, the case involved complex metallurgic analysis and foreign jurisdictional issues.
