Third-Party Automobile Negligence

Motor Vehicle Litigation / September 23, 2014

Court/Case No: Michigan Court of Appeals/314570

Tried/Argued Before: Judge

Demand: $1,500,000

Verdict: $0 - summary disposition affirmed on appeal

Name of Judge(s): Hon. Donald Owens; Hon. Kathleen Jansen; Hon. Peter O'Connell

Keys to the Case:

Detailed brief writing, and a thorough understanding of appellate procedure, ultimately led the Court of Appeals to affirm the trial court’s determination that the corporate defendant, represented by Secrest Wardle, had no vicarious liability for an after-hours automobile accident caused by a high level employee; summary disposition in our client’s favor was affirmed despite the plaintiff’s counsel’s unrelenting allegations that the employee had actually been leaving a work function and then conspired to cover it up.
