CondoPORTLAND, OR - A set of Portland condo owners who said they experienced several plumbing issues after moving in have collected a $2 million judgment.

Jurors gave compensatory damages to the Benson Tower Homeowners Association, which represents owners of units at the Southwest 11th Avenue and Clay Street development. The judgment, procured by attorneys at Portland's Landye Bennett Blumstein, went against Easton, Penn.-based plumbing products maker Victaulic Co.

The condo owners won the full amount they'd sought, according to the association's attorneys.

"This is a great victory for homeowners," said Landye's Michelle McClure, who represented the homeowners along with her firm-mate Stuart Cohen and Sacramento attorney Richard Sieving, in a release.

"Jurors delivered a strong message that companies will be held accountable for their defective products. This all would have gone away months ago, if Victaulic had simply stepped up to the plate and accepted responsibility for its mistakes and its defective products."

The condo owners said the company installed defective plumbing parts during the building's construction.

The 26-story building features 143 residential units that average around 810 square feet. Residents found that valves wouldn't shut off and that black particles showed up in the drinking water.

According to the suit, Victaulic's valves and couplings were found to be dissolving and disintegrating. The homeowners and Victaulic have battled for four years.

Three other homeowner groups had filed similar cases against Victaulic. Two have been resolved.
