ABSTRACT
The article discusses a court case wherein the case filed against Del Webb Communities amounted to only $4 million in damages. The plaintiffs' lawyers claimed that each of the 1,500 homeowners in Sun City Summerlin in Clark County, Nevada requires $50,000 in repairs. The plaintiffs did not win class action status which led individual homeowners to file separate cases. The verdict all came out the same saying that the developer garnered top honors in customer satisfaction in 11 markets around the U.S. which gives lie to the plaintiffs' claims.
