Facts: Our client, a residential landlord, withheld portions of the security deposit as authorized by the lease agreement.  The tenants sued arguing that they should have received their full security deposit and further argued that the portion withheld was done in violation of the Property Code.  The tenants asked for 3 times the amount of the security deposit plus attorney’s fees.
