Des Moines Contractor Required to Give Over Half of Payment Back to Attorney Anthony Osborn's Clients

A Monona County District Court Judge has ordered a Des Moines home builder to pay nearly $200,000 to Attorney Anthony Osborn's clients from Whiting, Iowa. According to the Court ruling, which followed a non-jury trial, the contractor received $375,000 from the couple but failed to complete their residence, leaving them with an incomplete home and a substantial amount of work which had to be completed by another contractor. The contractor disputed the allegations in the lawsuit, claiming, among other things, that he had been paid for services rendered and nothing more due to changes during the project which, he argued, increased the costs of construction.

Attorney Anthony Osborn, whose practice focuses on business litigation and construction law, represented the plaintiffs/homeowners.
