$6 Million Verdict Awarded in Lead Paint Case

Posted under Uncategorized

Chantey Holmes, the mother of 8 year old Antonio Ross Jr., won a $6 million settlement this week in her lawsuit against Garden Village Realty Corp. and property manager Regional Management Inc. The lawsuit claimed that they ignored her complaints over the paint in her apartment and leaks in the roof and ceiling. It alleges that lead in the paint caused her 8 year old son to develop cognitive and motor impairment which he still suffers from today.

Records show that the Baltimore City Health Department issued a violation notice against Garden Village. A Baltimore jury awarded a $6 million verdict in the case, though it will most likely be capped to around $590,000 to $620,000 in accordance with Maryland law.
