Pettit Kohn Obtains Defense Verdict in San Bernardino Jury Trial

On November 5, 2008, Pettit Kohn successfully defended one of its clients in a premises liability lawsuit. The plaintiff claimed she was injured on the client’s premises by a motorized mart-cart driven by another customer. Plaintiff sought $200,000 in damages. The jury determined that the incident could not have occurred as described by the plaintiff and therefore could not have caused her claimed injuries. The jury also found that Pettit Kohn’s client was not negligent in the maintenance and operation of its premises. David Halm represented the client on the firm’s behalf.
