Ryan Johannsen settles subrogation claim

Ryan Johannsen was successful in settling a subrogation claim against a manufacturer of ball valves that were installed in a condominium association. Mr. Johannsen and his expert argued that the ball valves failed or were likely to fail due to a manufacturer’s defect with respect to a material deficiency, and specifically that the brass fittings contained elevated levels of zinc that made them susceptible to stress corrosion cracking.
