Assault & Battery on Admitted Liability

By March 17, 2020 March 18th, 2020 All Case Results, Civil Defense

This was an Assault & Battery matter filed by a Parking Attendant against our client. After an argument at a parking lot, our client admitted to kicking the Plaintiff. Plaintiff sued alleging that he had two shoulder surgeries and a wrist surgery demanding $2,000,000.00 in general damages and $10,000,000.00 in punitive damages. After a mediation with his former attorney, our client’s former attorney stated that our client needed to come up to $450,000.00 to settle this case, or that he will lose at trial and will lose much more than $450,000.00. Our client fired the former attorney and hired Ryu Weimortz Murphy to try this case. After a 7 -Day Jury Trial with Joe Weimortz and Thomas Ryu trying the case, the Jury deliberated for only 2 hours and came back with a Defense Verdict stating that our client won on all counts and did not owe any money to Plaintiff.

Demand: $2,000,000.00
Trial: Defense Verdict
