Windsor Village defendants protest
The attorneys for three of the seven defendants named in a lawsuit filed by Cayman General Insurance Company and the Proprietors of the Windsor Village Strata Plan, issued a press release Wednesday refuting the Statement of Claim.
The law firm Campbells issued the release on behalf of defendants Crawford Adjustors (Cayman) Ltd., Bould Paterson Ltd. and Alastair Paterson.
‘The allegations made against them are wrong and the basis of the claims against them is fundamentally flawed,’ the press release stated.
‘They are confident that the Court will reject the plaintiffs’ claims against them when it has heard the true facts.’
The law suit, which was filed on behalf of the plaintiffs by the law firm Quin and Hampson on 28 February, concerns post-Hurricane Ivan restoration works to Windsor Village, a waterfront South Sound condominium development.
The plaintiffs are claiming, among other things, that they paid Hurlston Limited and/or Hurlston General Contractors Limited more than CI$3 million for what a commissioned consultant claimed was less than CI$1 million worth of work.
The Statement of Claim stated that Crawford acted as the loss adjuster in the insurance claim, and that Bould Paterson acted in the capacity of quantity surveyor and project manager.
Mr. Paterson was a director of both companies and the person responsible for providing the loss adjustor, quantity surveyor, project manager services to Cayman General and Windsor Village.
