Top Plaintiff's Verdicts by Impact of 2012: Berg & Berg v. City of San Jose

Michael J. Betz and Robert R. Moore in Daily Journal

The Daily Journal's list of Top Plaintiffs' Verdicts by Impact in 2012 included Berg & Berg v. City of San Jose, which was handled by Michael J. Betz and Robert R. Moore of Allen Matkins. The case involved a breach of contract claim between the firm's client, Berg & Berg, and the City of San Jose. Betz and Moore argued that the city contracted with Berg & Berg, a real estate developer, and promised the developer an expedited permitting process for its $250 million infrastructure project. The city did not deliver. The jury awarded Berg & Berg $6.1 million in a case that is seen as a big win for developers.
