Case Conclusion Date:November 7, 2011
Outcome:Verdict Reinstated (win)
Description:I filed a friend of the court brief with the Colorado Supreme Court in favor of Petitioner Holly Averyt. A jury had awarded Averyt approximately $15 million and the trial judge had granted Wal-Mart's motion for a new damages trial. On behalf of the Colorado Trial Lawyers' Association, I argued that the jury's verdict should be reinstated. Ms. Averyt won, the trial court's order was reversed, and the jury award was reinstated.
