Congratulations to BWB&O’s Los Angeles Office on Another Successful MSJ!

Bremer Whyte Brown & O’Meara, LLP is proud to announce Partner Daniel Crespo and Associate Stefon Jackson successfully argued and won a Motion for Summary Judgment (“MSJ”) for our client, a property owner of an apartment complex.

Plaintiff was involved in a physical altercation with one of the tenants at an apartment complex owned by our client. Plaintiff alleged that our client had notice of a propensity for violence claiming that there were prior instances of contentious interactions between this particular tenant and Plaintiff. As a result, Plaintiff alleged that our client had a duty to prevent further interactions between Plaintiff and the tenant presuming that an act of physical violence was reasonably foreseeable.

Through aggressive formal discovery, and depositions of pertinent witnesses, Mr. Crespo and Mr. Jackson were able to build a defense that illuminated the fact there was never any prior notice given to our client, nor were there signs of a dangerous propensity to act violently from the tenant involved in the altercation. Ultimately, the court granted BWB&O’s MSJ, agreeing there was no evidence against our client that would have made the physical altercation foreseeable to prevent.

Please join us in congratulating Daniel Crespo and Stefon Jackson!
