Post-Verdict Defense Judgment Dismisses $11 Million Dollar Verdict In Asbestos Litigation!

Posted in Asbestos

gavelCongratulations to trial counsel, Robert S. Deutsch and Nancy L. Pennie, and post-trial motion authors, Nancy L. Pennie, Elliott J. Zucker, and Oded Burger, on a post-verdict dismissal of all personal injury claims against their client. The defense successfully established that plaintiffs’ experts impermissibly based their causation opinions on invalid assumptions and therefore lacked proper foundation. As a result, the trial judge struck plaintiffs’ experts’ unsupported causation opinions and rendered a defense judgment vacating an $11 Million verdict. A copy of the decision and order is available on the court’s website.
