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.
