Oregon Couple Wins $300,000 from Former Contractor

August 29, 2008

A Multnomah County jury has awarded a couple from Boring, Ore. $300,000 in their lawsuit against former Oregon City contractor Wade McGilvra, whom they accused of fraud.

Customers and subcontractors filed more than 40 complaints against McGilvra before the Oregon Construction Contractors Board revoked his license in 2005.

Roy and Kris Weedman paid nearly $500,000 for a house that would double as a commercial wedding and reception hall. Upon completion in 2002 county building officials would not approve it for commercial use, saying it didn’t meet the commercial building code.

The Weedmans initially filed a complaint with the Construction Contractors Board, which dismissed the claim.
