Case History

McMahon v. Exxon & SCDOTRepresentation of family members tragically inured as a result of negligent design of a gas station driveway at a busy intersection. Eighty four witnesses, sixteen expert witnesses. Resulted in the largest PI settlement in Sc at the time. 
In Re Household Goods Moving and Storage Antitrust Class Action — One of the lead counsel for Plaintiffs resulting in a $44.6 million settlement on behalf of persons who had been wrongly charged a highly inflated fuel surcharge. 
Brown v. SCDOT & Banks Construction — Action resulting in a record settlement on behalf of 300+ persons injured  as a result of improper grading of an interstate highway in a resurfacing project. As a result, the SCDOT changed requirements for work to now require post work confirmation by survey of the work performed. 
Runkle v. Genesis Worldwide II — Action against the successor corporation which bought a business in a bankruptcy sale, and wherein the successor corporation claimed it was protected by a Bar Order issued by the bankruptcy Court. This action was originally filed in USDC in Sc, then in the Bankruptcy Court in Ohio, then the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, then back to USDC, then the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, all resulting in each court affirming the plaintiff's right to proceed. Eventually resulted in a very substantial settlement. 
Doe v. Gentiva — Action on behalf of a now deceased hospice patient after she was sexually assaulted by an intruder. Resulted not only in a substantial settlement, but a change in the large corporate defendant's security policy for the benefit of the patients.
