Here is a preview of the September 2017 issue of the Miss. Jury Verdict Reporter:

  • $2.2 million verdict- Hinds County car wreck case covered here (8/18/17);
  • $1.22 million verdict- Gulfport federal court under-insured motorist case covered here (8/10/17);
  • $83,447 verdict- Aberdeen federal court retaliation case covered here (8/23/17);
  • $59,448 verdict- Franklin County uninsured motorist case (9/20/16);
  • defense verdict- Harrison County medical malpractice case (8/16/17); and
  • defense verdict- Harrison County uninsured motorist case (8/23/17).

My Take:

Good month for plaintiffs, winning 4 of 6 with two 7-figure verdicts.

It’s hard to say what will happen to the Hinds County verdict on appeal. But the 5th Circuit usually affirms jury verdicts.
