“Recently, my law partner Matt Moffett and I obtained a very defense-favorable resolution to a shooting-injury case in which Plaintiff’s counsel sought an “eight figure” verdict.”
“WHEN IT CAME time to seek big money for a shooting in a movie theater parking lot, a plaintiff with a bullet lodged in her gut instead settled with Regal Cinemas for $50,000 just after a jury was seated Monday.”
Defense attorneys Matthew Moffett and W. Winston Briggs were surprised the case settled because their offer had been pending for two years, and there was a large gap between the sides’ valuations of the case.
