Dallas Jury Awards $248,000 for Residence Damaged during LBJ Express Construction. 223 More Cases Await Trial.

The Dallas Morning News reports that a Dallas County jury has awarded a couple $248,723 “for damage caused to their home during construction of the LBJ Express project. . . .” The report adds, “This was just the first case to hit a courtroom. One down, 223 to go. [Plaintiffs’ attorney Dean] Gresham said earlier this week that if he wins them all, Trinity Infrastructure could be on the hook for ‘north of $60, $65 million.’” A spokesperson for Trinity (one of the LBJ Express project partners) tells the newspaper the company is disappointed with the verdict, has no interest in settling, and “stands behind the integrity” of its work.
