There was a $2.3 million verdict on Friday in a silica trial in Hinds County Circuit Court.

The jury rendered a verdict of $1.7 million in compensatory damages and $500,000 in punitive damages.

I do not know yet if the jury apportioned fault to any non-parties.

Patrick Malouf and Allen Smith of Jackson represented the plaintiff. John Cosmich represented the defendant.

Judge Winston Kidd presided in the case.

Update: The defendant was Mississippi Valley Silica Co. The jury allocated 35% fault to Miss. Valley Silica.
