Motor Vehicle Litigation / August 20, 2013
Court/Case No: Court of Appeals Case No. 306492
Tried/Argued Before: Judge
Verdict: remanded - summary disposition in Plaintiff's favor reversed
Name of Judge(s): Hon. Mark T. Boonstra, Hon. David H. Sawyer, Hon. Christopher M. Murray
Keys to the Case:
A detailed analysis of precedent enabled appellate counsel to persuade the appellate court that the trial court erred by ruling, as a matter of law, that a motor vehicle insured by defendant was “involved” in an accident with plaintiff’s decedent, a motorcyclist. Appellate counsel successfully argued that because there was no physical contact between the motorcyclist and the motor vehicle, defendant must be allowed to argue the absence of involvement to a jury.
