In the News: Defense Verdict in $1.3M Lawsuit for Client Featured in the Daily Report

January 02, 2020 BY DEF Admin

In an article published by the Fulton County Daily Report, Jeff Ward's defense verdict for client Terex Corp. was featured on December 26, 2019. 

Excerpts from "Defense Notches Win in $1.3M Lawsuit Over Faulty Wood Chippers:"

"The defense logged a win in a federal trial involving claims that two commercial off-road wood chippers were unreliable and prone to breakdowns, and that the manufacturer breached its warranties.  Lawyers for the plaintiff, a south Georgia company that rents out equipment and provides services for clearing timber, had asked the jury to award nearly $1.3 million, said Jeffrey Ward of Drew Eckl & Farnham’s Brunswick office."

"The suit included claims for breach of contract, negligent design, negligent manufacturing and breach of express and implied warranties, but several claims were dismissed on summary judgment as the litigation progressed. The case went to trial Dec. 9 before Judge Stan Baker on ROW’s claims for breach of warranty and attorney fees. The plaintiffs lawyers asked for special damages of $887,000, Ward said, and attorney fees of 33%, for a total just shy of $1.3 million. The jury took about four hours to find for the defense at about 8:30 p.m. Friday, he said."
