Steves & Sons Inc. v. Jeld-Wen Inc.

The defendant, a doorskin manufacturer, was entitled to judgment as a matter of law despite adverse jury findings. The plaintiff had successfully claimed that the doorskin manufacturer provided defective products without reimbursement, for either the doorskins themselves or for the doors containing them. Although the jury agreed with both theories, the plaintiff didn’t present sufficient evidence about the defects affecting the doors to allow the jury to infer that the defendant wrongfully failed to reimburse for the doorskins or the entire doors.

The plaintiff’s claim for damages in the amount of $1,776,813 fails as a matter of law.
