Last week SA Legal provided trial presentation services for a group of plaintiff firms in Austin, TX. This trial was different and interesting due to it being a bench trial. I’ve never been involved in a case where a judge was asked to award $50million in a wrongful death lawsuit.
The most shocking part is these climbers are built in someone’s backyard, without the requirement of an engineer. The platforms in this case were held on by two bolts… two bolts. And the “manufacturer” used the wrong bolts. Extremely sad but alarming trial.

Still no ruling yet!
