Client v. Defendant (D. Neb. 2017)
Facts: The Beattie Law Firm represented a client following an industrial setting fire that resulted in substantial property damage to the facility. Suit was brought against the defendant, who designed, manufactured, and sold the commercial dryer to the client. The theory of liability asserted was that the defendant failed to meet established industry standards concerning necessary fire safety equipment.
Settlement: The Beattie Law Firm obtained a confidential seven figure settlement after a week-long trial in federal court. Settlement was reached prior to closing arguments.
