Class Action Lawsuits Against Condo Developers
POSTED BY BARBARA HOLMES ON MARCH 14, 2012
Last August we blogged about several incidents of breaking glass on balcony railings in some downtown Toronto condos. As a result of those incidents two class actions have been commenced against the developers and the declarant of the Murano Towers and the Festival Towers. The architects as well as the manufacturer/installer of the glass railings were also sued.
As set out in the claims, after several incidents of falling glass in or around August, 2011, the doors to the balconies were sealed from the outside so that they could not be opened from inside the unit and a notice was posted on the balconies prohibiting access to the balconies. Each lawsuit is claiming $15,000,000 in general damages (plus another $4,000,000 for punitive damages and $1,000,000 for costs) on behalf of the owners and tenants of units in the buildings who were deprived of the loss and enjoyment of the balconies
