Barrett Enix Successfully Defends Local Real Estate Developer

McCandlish Holton trial attorney Barrett Enix recently obtained a defense verdict for his client, a Richmond real estate developer. Plaintiff claimed he was injured by a dangerous condition existing at a City of Richmond property Mr. Enix’s client had recently purchased to renovate. According to Plaintiff, as a result of the dangerous condition, portions of the chimney fell and struck him in the head, causing lacerations and a concussion. At trial, Plaintiff presented three witnesses in support of his claim. At the conclusion of Plaintiff’s case-in-chief, Mr. Enix moved to strike Plaintiff’s evidence, arguing there was insufficient evidence to demonstrate, among other things, that his client had actual or constructive notice of the allegedly dangerous condition. The Court agreed, striking Plaintiff’s evidence and entering judgment in favor of the defense.
