Moab Utah propane explosion litigationMy partner and I defended Atlantic Richfield in 13 different lawsuits for deaths and catistropic burn injuries arising from propane gas leaking into a campground in Moab, Utah.
Vesely v FHPThis was a month long trial in a medical malpractice case in Salt Lake City,Utah. I was lead trial counsel and we obtained a $8.1 million dallar verdict for our client, James Veseley, who sustained a birth injury. The case was resolved without an appeal.
Campbell v State Farm Ins. 538 U.S. 408 (2003):This has become one of the most cited cases in the U.S. and is a landmark decision on punitive damages. I was co-lead trial counsel in the lengthy trial resulting in a verdict in favor of our client (Campbell) of $147,000,000. This was initially upheld by the Utah Supreme Court, but later reduced to $11,000,000 after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled. The court''s findings of a long term pattern of mistreatment of policy holders by the defendent, along with more than 50 pages of factual findings were upheld at all levels of review.
