Here is a preview of the July 2019 issue of the Miss. Jury Verdict Reporter:

  • $1.5 million verdict- Lamar County breach of contract case covered here (6/5/19);
  • $150,000 bench verdict- Clay County legal malpractice case (6/24/19);
  • $30,000 verdict- Hinds County car wreck case covered here (6/20/19);
  • $18,990 verdict- Hinds County breach of contract case (5/21/19);
  • defense verdict- Benton County funeral home negligence case (5/31/19); and
  • defense verdict- Oxford federal court employment retaliation case (6/12/19).

My Take:

Lamar County is the jackpot justice venue and Hinds County is the venue for low plaintiff PI verdicts? Wow, things changed while I was out of town this summer.
