New Jersey Associate Neil Tortora obtained a defense award in an arbitration involving real estate broker liability. Plaintiff was injured while viewing a home listed by our client. The arbitrator found that the plaintiff did not meet her burden of proof for her failure to retain a liability expert and entered a defense award on liability. The arbitrator did not extend the duty of a listing broker to provide similar inspection duties of an owner of real estate without professional requirements and standards being presented by way of an expert.
