Products Liability, Personal Injury - Harold Roy and Hazel Roy v. Gabriel Building Supply Co., Inc. and Davidson Ladders, Inc.
Ms. Marshall handled this case involving a fall product trial, where the plaintiff sustained a severely broken leg, requiring more than thirteen surgeries, which, up to the time of the trial, had never healed. Plaintiff's demand was $7 million dollars. After a week long trial, the plaintiff's attorney lost the ladder in question, but the judge would not allow a spoliation charge to the jury, and prevented the attorneys from finding out that the plaintiff and/or his attorney had lost the ladder. After a week long jury trial, a defense verdict was rendered.
