A jury in Pima County returned a unanimous verdict in favor of B&C client, Bashas’ Inc., after a two week trial. Two parents and their 5 year old daughter claimed negligence against Bashas'. The jury found in favor of Bashas and determined conclusively that there was no negligence on the part of the store or its employees.
The case was a key victory since the Plaintiffs alleged that the minor suffered a brain injury and continuing damage, and asked the jury for a monetary award equivalent to payment that would continue for her entire life.
B&C attorney Susie Ingold tried the case, with the help of her paralegal, Debra Wedlake, against two attorneys from the Tucson firm of Hollingsworth Kelly.
