Word is there was a $36 million verdict in the Paulding division of Jasper County this week. Here is the Complaint in what I believe to be the case (Tanner v. Eagle Oil & Gas Co.). The plaintiff was injured while working on an oil well.

The Hortman Harlow firm in Laurel represented the plaintiff.

I will post more details about the verdict if I get any. Shannon Ragland of the Mississippi Jury Verdict Reporter is investigating the verdict and I am sure he will have all the details in a future issue of that publication.
