January 15, 2018
Shelby Wilson, with assistance from Shawna Dalrymple, obtained a unanimous no negligence defense verdict on behalf of a Waskom, Texas veterinarian in Justice of the Peace Court Precinct 3, Harrison County, Texas. Plaintiffs brought suit against this veterinarian alleging negligence, gross negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress for the unfortunate death of their dog during a neutering procedure.
After successfully arguing prior to trial to dismiss the claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress and gross negligence, the trial proceeded with only a claim of negligence against the veterinarian.
After less than 10 minutes of deliberation, the jury returned a unanimous verdict finding no negligence on the part of the veterinarian.
