Congratulations to Associate Brandon James on his Recent Win!

Congratulations to Associate Brandon James on his recent win! Mr. James successfully defended an insurance company in a case involving uninsured motorist benefits. Plaintiff initially alleged Co-Defendant was liable for Plaintiff's injuries. After exchanging discovery and learning of Co-Defendant's version of events, Plaintiff amended their Complaint, adding Mr. James' client to the lawsuit. Co-Defendant claimed that a "phantom" vehicle struck his vehicle, causing it to collide with the Plaintiff's vehicle. Thus, Plaintiff claimed that Mr. James' client breached their contract for uninsured motorist benefits. 

At trial, after Plaintiff rested their case, Mr. James moved for judgment in favor of his client, arguing that even in the light most favorable to the Plaintiff, Plaintiff failed to prove the existence of a "phantom" vehicle. After lengthy argument on the matter, the Court agreed with Mr. James, and granted judgment in favor of his client. Congratulations Mr. James!
