The settlement achieved by the Shernoff Bidart Echeverria LLP and Inner City Law Center teams with the defendants resulted in nearly $4 million in settlement with the landlord.
The final monetary settlement in the matter Villegas, et al. v. Vista Cahuenga, et al., was reached in April 2014, and concluded a global recovery for the clients in the amount of $680,000 in monetary damages, plus relocation benefits of $93,150.
