TIM NEWSOM RECOGNIZED FOR TOP DEFENSE VERDICT

Jul 1, 2016

On July 11, 2015, a Midland County jury found unanimously in favor of Aranda Pools, Inc. and against Midland oilman David Arrington.  Arrington had sued Aranda for breach of contract and breach of warranty arising from Aranda's construction of a beautiful $592,000 backyard swimming pool.  Arrington wanted to tear out and rebuild the pool.  

Arrington sought damages of $900,000 plus attorney's fees making his total damge claim over $1.2 million.  Aranda counterclaimed for breach of contract to pay the full contract price.  After an eight day trial, the jury found in favor of Aranda and against Arrington.  The jury awarded Aranda $77,000 in actual damages (the balance owed under the contract) and $300,000 in attorney's fees.  The case was a bet-the-company case with Aranda's future dependent on a successful outcome.

On June 29, 2015, the court entered judgment for Aranda and awarded all damages and fees as found by the jury.

Verdict Search recognized this case as one of the top defense verdicts for 2015.
