Securing defense verdict in bus-crash case.
Lightfoot obtained a defense verdict on behalf of our clients arising out of a bus crash. The case, pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi, involved a charter bus. The court scheduled a liability trial to last one week and three successive damages trials. We proceeded to trial, and our only argument was to argue burden of proof. After one-and-a-half hours of deliberations, the jury returned a defense verdict.
