Ford Motor Co. v. Hall-Edwards, 971 So. 2d 854 (Fla. 3d DCA 2007)
In Hall-Edwards v. Ford, 971 So. 2d 854 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2007), Bowman and Brooke attorneys obtained a reversal of a $60 million verdict because the court erred as a matter of law in admitting evidence of other accidents without requiring the plaintiff to meet their burden of proving substantial similarity. Importantly, the court rejected the argument that this requirement could be disregarded simply because punitive damages were at issue.
Defendant was represented by Wendy Lumish and Alina Rodriguez of Bowman and Brooke LLP
