MGS’ Dan Mohan secured a not-guilty jury verdict against the plaintiff’s request for $2,600,000 in damages in Tenesha Martin v. Canadian Pacific Railway.

The plaintiff claimed multiple injuries due to a forklift accident while loading a truck at CP’s facility. While operating the forklift, the plaintiff fell from a railroad owned and operated truck dock, while unloading an unmanned trailer/cab owned by Central Transport. After only two hours of deliberation, the jury found CP not guilty of negligence and awarded no damages against Canadian Pacific.

The jury awarded a gross amount of $284,000 against Central Transport, Inc., but found the plaintiff 30% at fault for a net award of $198,000.
