Cecil County Jury Returns Defense Verdict

RSRM associate attorney, Andy Nichols, tried a two-day jury trial in the Circuit Court for Cecil County on March 7-8, 2012.  Plaintiff filed suit against the Defendant, a restaurant, alleging she cut herself in Defendant's restroom, when the sink fell from the wall.  Plaintiff alleged that the sink was improperly maintained and/or installed.

After listening to testimony from several witnesses, including a plumber retained by Defendant, the jury, after thirteen (13) minutes of deliberation, returned a verdict in favor of the Defendant, finding that there was no evidence of negligence on Defendant's part.
