In Texas, Justice is Served-Perry Homes Loses CD Suit, HO’s Awarded 58 Million

An elderly couple who since 2000 have been battling Houston-based Perry Homes over construction defects in their home in suburban Fort Worth, Texas, on Monday were awarded $58 million in damages by a jury in a Tarrant County court. That verdict has been characterized in press reports as a sharp rebuke of Bob Perry, Perry Homes’ owner and one of the state’s most powerful and politically influential businessmen.

It also awarded $7.1 million in actual damages and $4 million in punitive damages against the builder’s warranty provider, Houston-based Warranty Underwriters Insurance.
