George represented the successful plaintiff in the first appellate case to consider the Washington Residential Real Property Seller's Disclosure Act, Svendsen v. Stock & John L. Scott, 153 Wn.2d 546 (2001). This case confirmed that the Washington Consumer Protection Act still applies to real estate brokers in residential real estate transactions.
