Gault and Ritchie Complete Successful Jury Trial
Win Gault and Spencer Ritchie completed a successful jury trial for an international oil field supply company in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Mississippi. The plaintiff claimed almost $10 million for property damage to its business and clean-up costs resulting from a spill of hydrochloric acid. After a successful partial motion to dismiss, a partial motion for summary judgment, and an eight day jury trial, the jury awarded plaintiff 5% of the original damage claim.
