July 19, 2019 Congrats to the good people at Southwest Airlines and their outside counsel including Tim Ryan, Rebekka Martorano, and Andy Ryan on their defense verdict in Oakland today. This was a challenging wrongful death trial, involving a passenger who had a pulmonary embolism while in the bathroom during flight. While the trial and pre-trial prep took me away from home for much of the last 2 months, I am so honored and proud to have been part of this success story. Special thanks to the jury for sticking with us for 5 weeks and for getting it right. And kudos to all involved for trusting the jury system.
