A $2 million judgment against the companies of Design District developer Craig Robins in a dispute over a private jet could be jeopardized by a juror's alleged criminal history.
Judge Darrin Gayles on Friday dismissed attempts by Robins' attorneys to toss the judgment on the grounds that two of six jurors who issued a verdict in the case had hid histories of litigation. But Gayles said a third juror accused of hiding two felony convictions from the 1980s could be questioned in court, leaving the door open that the jury's verdict in favor of high rise developer Ugo Colombo could be thrown out.
Colombo and Robins have been in a dispute over the jet they co-owned since late 2008. Colombo's attorneys said the alleged felony convictions in question are immaterial to the case.
