Court orders $2.5 million in damages to Kirk

SAN DIEGO – In January, a San Diego Superior Court jury ordered that Fallbrook businessman Guido DiMitri pay $3.7 million in compensatory damages and $2.5 million in punitive damages to his real estate partnership and business partner, Mark Kirk.

Kirk and DiMitri had formed a limited partnership, DiMitri, Diffendale & Kirk, LLP, several years ago to develop various residential properties in Fallbrook for resale. Kirk’s lawsuit charged that DiMitri engaged in a fraudulent scheme to take over the property for his own personal gain at the expense of the partnership.

Marty Mullen of Rowe, Allen, Mullen, LLP, attorney for Mark Kirk, noted that the jury’s verdict was unanimous on all claims.
