Injury & Tort Law

[11/16] Cornell v. City and County of San Francisco
Affirming the jury verdict for tortious interference with economic advantage, Civil Code violations, attorney fees, and costs in the case of a police officer trainee who was wrongly arrested and held while taking a morning run because there was sufficient evidence to support the decisions, damages awards, and verdict.

[11/16] Best Auto Repair Shop, Inc. v. Universal Insurance Group
Affirming the district court's grant of summary judgment dismissing the plaintiff's claims in the case alleging that insurance companies had unlawfully interfered with the plaintiff's right to make or enforce existing and prospective contracts with their insureds or third party claimants by excluding a repair shop and because the owner is black and Dominican because issues were waived or improperly pleaded.

[11/14] P. v. Conagra Grocery Products Company
Reversing a trial court judgment relating to the sale of lead-based paints because substantial evidence didn't show causation as to residences built after 1950 and directing the trial court to hold further proceedings on remand regarding the appointment of a suitable receiver for any damages, but otherwise affirming.

[11/13] Vasilenko v. Grace Family Church
Holding that a church did not owe its invitees a duty to prevent injuries that resulted from crossing a public street between the church's overflow parking lot and the church itself because the street's dangers were not obscured or magnified by any condition on the landowner's premises or any action taken by them.
