Please join us in congratulating Las Vegas Partner Scott Ulm and Associate Elizabeth Do on a fantastic short trial result! This was a Negligent Security case where Plaintiff was allegedly assaulted inside of our client’s store. The facts of the case established that words were exchanged outside the store and again inside while Plaintiff was waiting-in-line for a purchase.
Ultimately, this exchange resulted in a physical confrontation where three individuals assaulted Plaintiff. After Plaintiff was unhappy with the award he obtained via Nevada’s Mandatory Non-Binding Arbitration Program, Plaintiff was completely unreasonable in settlement negotiations and eventually requested a trial de novo, which placed this case in the Short Trial Program. Due to the arguments raised by Scott during the Short Trial, a full defense verdict was obtained on behalf of our client and Plaintiff walked away with nothing.
Again, Congratulations to Scott and Elizabeth on their success!
