August 15, 2014 will be a day Frank and Amy Taddeo will celebrate for a long time. Their cheap condo investment in Meridian Condos paid them millions in the courtroom, thanks to the stupidity of American Invsco and Koval Flamingo!
The two companies converted apartments into condos and spiffed them up. But the floor tiles they used illegally exceeded the load bearing limits of the structure. Lawsuits for breach of contract have been flying. Fortunately, there haven’t been any building collapses.
But where were the city engineers? City inspectors? Heck, even an interior designer would have questioned that much weight being added to the flooring.
It’s a rare court victory. But whether this family will collect has to be up in the air. There are 200 units in Meridian. If each owner won 2.4 million dollars in court that adds up to 480 million dollars.
