On November 29, 2018, after sitting through a 4 day jury trial in Maricopa County Superior Court, an eight-person jury panel rendered its verdict in favor of Attorney Benjamin Gottlieb’s client, a medical doctor. Gottlieb’s client, a commercial tenant, had terminated his lease due to a structural and foundational problem with the building. The landlord sued Gottlieb’s client seeking over $270,000 arising out of the lease. The jury awarded the landlord $0 and awarded the doctor tenant his security deposit back. On March 14, 2019, the judge signed the Judgment, declaring Gottlieb’s client the prevailing party in the litigation, affirming the damage award, and awarding the client his attorneys’ fees and costs. The Judgment is approximately $120,000.
