Tim Harris and Steve Soskin secured a 12-0 verdict of over $7million for client Fireman’s Fund Ins. Co., against Triton, Subs, Inc., and three guarantors insured by Travelers Ins. The San Francisco Superior court trial started May 20, 2019, and the verdict was returned on June 13, after less than 4 hours of deliberation. Post-trial motions added over $1 million in prevailing party attorney’s fees, $256,000 in expert fees pursuant to C.C.P. §998(b), and over $3 million in interest. Experts established that PVC insulation damaged during a commercial installation in 2003, had carbonized and then ignited in 2007, causing a fire that destroyed commercial structures.
