Case Conclusion Date:April 29, 2013
Practice Area:Wrongful Death
Outcome:Wrongful Death case reinstated.
Description:Insurance company lawyers argued a mother's case against a drunk driver for the wrongful death of her son should be dismissed based on her signing a release document that released her claims against the drunk driver's father. The trial judge agreed and dismissed. However, Mr. Cathey secured a reversal of that order from the 5th District Court of Appeal, reinstating the mother's case.
