Obtained Defense Verdict in Jury Trial Involving Business and Property Damage Claims of $400,000

A restaurant owner and a property owner sued our client, a franchisor, when they discovered soil contamination on their property at the same time there was a leak of over 5,000 gallons of gasoline at a nearby service station. Despite the judge's instruction to the jury that the company was negligent per se due to the leak, the jury returned a defendant's verdict, which was upheld on appeal.
