$84 Million verdict using Rules of the Road and Reptile

A jury in Dallas County Texas recently returned an $84 million verdict against U-Haul Corporation in a negligence case for failure to inspect, warn of dangers, and repair its trucks. Plaintiff's trial attorneys Marquette Wolf and Ted Lyon of Texas argued the case. 

Attorney Wolf patterned his arguments after the "Reptile" research in David Ball and Don Keenan's newest book, Reptile: The 2009 Manual of the Plaintiff's Revolution.

However, the plaintiff did not want to go after the defendant and his parents personally or force them into bankruptcy. Therefore, at mediation Harper demanded the $1.25 million policy limit to settle the claim. PEMCO refused, saying that they would "never pay policy limits on this claim." The defendants asked what would happen to them if an excess verdict were awarded? PEMCO assured them that PEMCO would pay "any amount awarded." PEMCO offered nothing and the case was scheduled for trial.
