August 27, 1999
In this auto negligence case, a Louisville jury found in favor of a man accused of violently crashing his truck into a woman’s small sedan. The man remembered the collision as minor and initiated by the woman. Regardless, the woman claimed injury from the impact, purportedly suffering a painful low-back injury and soft-tissue bruising on her legs. In defense, David Strite contested injury alongside liability, attributing the low-back injury to unrelated degenerative conditions. The defense then urged the jury to quickly take care of this frivolous lawsuit. The jury complied, returning a zero verdict just forty minutes later.
