Defense Verdict for our Client

Congratulations to Chris Trent, Rafe Taylor and the entire JTWT trial team for a September 1, 2010, defense verdict in the matter of Trenado v. Cooper Tire & Rubber Company in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas.

Plaintiffs alleged that there were numerous design and manufacturing defects in a tire designed and manufactured by Cooper Tire that caused an accident where two people died and three were injured. After a 7-day trial, the jury deliberated for less than four hours before completely exonerating Cooper Tire from all liability.
