Now This Is Tort Reform - To Its Ultimate
by Michael Fox
The South Florida Business Journal has the story of a million dollar verdict for a workers compensation retaliation, that has now been thrown out of court because of the plaintiff's testimony. Although the jury seemed to buy it, neither the trial judge who granted a new trial, nor the appellate court which disallowed the new trial and instead dismissed the case, did. And in fact, reacted quite negatively, terming the, now unsuccessful, plaintiff a 'miscreant.' This one is worth reading.
