Wesierski and Zurek Defense Verdict on first post-pandemic in-person jury trial

Wesierski and Zurek is very pleased to announce their first post-pandemic in-person jury trial resulted in a defense verdict.

The case was tried in Federal Court in Riverside on behalf of the County of San Bernardino and a deputy allegedly charged with using excessive force in a shooting situation.

The case started out with eight claims and four defendants with punitive damages being claimed.

After a motion to dismiss and a summary judgment motion the case was narrowed down to one claim for excessive force and against one individual.

The jury unanimously agreed with the defense side and gave a defense verdict.

The plaintiff unfortunately was rendered a paraplegic because of the shooting and the demand at trial was $15 million.

The opposing lawyer is well known and handles these type of cases frequently.

Congratulations to Chris Wesierski, Michelle Prescott both partners with the firm and Debbie Murphy the assigned paralegal who also went to trial on a fantastic job in a tough case

After two years of lockdowns and social distancing, W&Z attorneys and staff from the LA office took a bus down to Orange County to check out our new office in Lake Forest.

Attorneys and staff from both offices were finally able to get reacquainted and introduce newcomers to the firm. Pizza 900 served fresh made pizzas from a wood burning oven that they brought with them, and served gelato for dessert.

We’re looking to have another get-together in the future at the Pasadena office. Check out our pics below.
