Defense verdict at trial after partial summary judgment for client substantially decreases potential damages
We initially obtained partial summary judgment on behalf of our client, a national convenience store chain, on issue of causation. The plaintiff was claiming damages close to $300,000 dollars due to personal injury and lost wages in a premises liability suit. Due to the partial summary judgment in the case, the potential damages recoverable by Plaintiff were substantially less. We went to trial in federal court on the remaining damages and obtained a defense verdict on behalf of our client.
