Philadelphia, PA —
Partner Bob Cosgrove and associate Remy Cahn obtained a defense verdict in the case of Anthony Tosco, et al. v. Helen Kohler, et al., PA Court of Common Pleas, Lehigh County. In the case, Tosco, a real estate developer, alleged that the historical farming practices employed by Kohler and her farming tenant Houstin Lichtenwalner had unreasonably and unnaturally diverted and increased the flow of water onto Tosco’s commercial property and thereby caused almost $300,000 in property damage. At trial, we challenged the plaintiffs’ contentions and argued that the employed farming practices had not, in fact, changed the natural water patterns. In a 10-2 decision, the jury agreed with our version of events and found in favor of our client.
