Senior Counsel Ashley Loeb recently prevailed in a complex appeal. After another attorney at the firm secured a defense verdict at trial on behalf of the client in a multi-party automobile accident case, the plaintiff appealed. Plaintiff Appellant’s opening brief raised approximately 15 different legal issues as grounds for overturning the defense verdict, including erroneous opening of a default, inconsistent verdicts, failure to instruct the jury regarding res ipsa loquitor, erroneous exclusion of medical records and evidence at trial, and failure to instruct the jury on negligence per se. Mrs. Loeb tackled each legal issue in her respondent’s brief, which served as the basis for the Court of Appeal’s opinion affirming the judgment. After extensive oral argument, the Court of Appeal issued its opinion which virtually mirrored the respondent’s brief.
