Following-up to this post, the court agrees.
A jury has awarded no money to a couple in their lawsuit against the Chesapeake Airport Authority, in what airport officials said vindicated their decision to defend against noise-pollution lawsuits rather than settle.
George and Margaret Osipovs sued the authority in 2004, saying the airport’s noise and traffic decreased the value of their home. Chesapeake Circuit Court Judge Randy Smith ruled in 2007 that the Osipovs’ property had been harmed, but a jury decided Friday not to award any money in damages.
The plaintiffs’ lawyers vow to appeal.
