[SUPER=03-Nelson Co./File Tape;]


Walter and Nancy Childs say their dream home was built on unstable soils.
They say Wintergreen Development should have known.
Along with the financial award, the jury found Wintergreen Development had violated federal disclosure law and the Virginia Consumer Protection Act.
L-F Payne is President and founder of Wintergreen Development -- but says he was NOT actively involved in the company when the Childs built their house.
Payne alleges the Childs' problems are a result of poor design on a garage addition.
