Shareholders Flesher and Schaff Obtain Favorable Jury Verdict
Shareholders Jacob Flesher and Jason Schaff obtained a favorable verdict for their client in a three-week jury trial in Fresno. Even though the client admitted liability, the jury refused to award the Plaintiff any future wage loss, a claim that exceeded $2 million. In pretrial motions, Mr. Schaff convinced the court that plaintiff’s economist used an illegal method to calculate damages, resulting in a $250,000 benefit to our client. The final verdict, $510,000, fell significantly below Plaintiff’s request of more than $5 million in damages and below the last offer made by the client before trial.
