More Lawsuits Brewing Against Arvida

Complaints about mold could trigger dozens of lawsuits against the developer of a Southside Jacksonville neighborhood, according to an attorney for several homeowners. Arvida, a major Florida homebuilder, has been sued at least six times this year by owners of homes in the James Island subdivision off Butler Boulevard. But after examining about 30 Arvida houses, “100 percent of the homes we’re looking at had … underlying construction defects,” said Barry Ansbacher, a lawyer for the plaintiffs.
