05 Aug $1,125,000
War ends with plaintiff’s verdict on liability and damages award of $1,125,000.
Defense counsel was confrontational from the start of this trial. Thankfully, plaintiff had Glenn Auletta as her trial counsel to fight fire with fire. After plaintiff was cross-examined on a different account of how the incident occurred due to inconsistent medical record entries, Mr. Auletta paraded in multiple witnesses who supported plaintiff as falling in the bathroom of her neighbor’s apartment building, as opposed to on the stairwell. In addition, a bio-mechanical expert was precluded and a missing witness charge was read to the jury after the superintendent failed to appear due to Glenn’s legal arguments. A motion to set aside the verdict was denied.
