Gold Weems Lawyers Obtain Defense Verdict from Avoyelles Jury

August 12, 2014

Firm litigators Steven M. Oxenhandler and Sam N. Poole, Jr. successfully defended the City of Marksville and its employee against a substantial vehicular negligence claim in which the plaintiff demanded several hundred thousand dollars.  On August 6, 2014, after a full trial and deliberation in the 12th JDC in the Parish of Avoyelles, the jury returned a verdict which rejected the plaintiff's damage claims and assigned equal fault to her, resulting in a nominal recovery of $5,000.
