WTO wins jury defense verdict for AT&T in premises liability case
Kelly-Williams v. AT&T
(La. 9th Jud. Dist. Ct.)
In December 2010, a Louisiana jury returned a complete defense verdict in favor of AT&T in a premises liability case. The plaintiff, the mother of a two-year-old male, sued AT&T alleging negligence and liability for a traumatic brain injury after an advertising sign in one of its stores fell on her son. The mother took the child to the emergency room the day after the accident when he began experiencing seizures. After a failed mediation, AT&T called WTO to defend the case at trial.
