St. Paul Fire & Marine v. Mobile Mini

Timothy Bryan Liebaert

Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2004

Practice Area:Commercial

Outcome:Settled for substantially less than requested.

Description:USC was remodeling its facilities and placed slabs of marble into Mobile Mini's movable bins. When the bins were not paid for by a General Contractor Mobile Mini took possession of the bins. USC and St. Paul claimed that in moving the bins Mobile Mini damaged "historic marble" and sought hundreds of thousands of dollars. Through the use of an expert, we demonstrated that all marble is "historic," e.g., thousands of years old. For this reason, we settled for a nuisance amount.
