Not a fan, but perhaps this is an occasion where using the word "seriatim" might make sense:
Doherty is expected to allow $12.9 million in prejudgment interest through Oct. 6 when the final judgment was entered. This would bring the total award to $31.7 million, Gilbert said. This was the fourth plaintiff win on compensation. A Lee County jury award $7.9 million on July 3, and $5.6 million was added Aug. 18 in prejudgment interest.This is my favorite part of what has turned out to be a decade-long, near-continuous legal blood bath:
Previous verdicts favored plaintiffs in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Those judgments were upheld on appeal on the issue of liability. Because of that, Gilbert is seeking a motion for summary judgment on liability in the Miami-Dade Circuit class action. The hearing is set for late November.
Defense case: Parsons did not respond to a request for comment by deadline.Is there any more that needs to be said?
Are these cases lumbering on like the "dead hand" Soviet anti-nuclear strategy, or is there someone/anyone in charge who can bring these things to a rational end?
