The Law Offices of Brad Jackson in Dallas is being recognized for the firm’s role in a wrongful death trial that produced the “Most Impressive Plaintiffs Verdict of 2022” against one of the country’s largest telecommunications companies.

The $7.3 billion verdict handed down last July by a jury in Dallas County Court at Law No. 5 is the largest jury award in the U.S. during the past year, leading the Courtroom View Network’s compilation of its top trials in 2022.

Firm founder Brad Jackson represented the family of Betty Thomas along with lawyers from Dallas’ Mullen & Mullen in the lawsuit against Charter Communications. Chris Hamilton and Ray Khirallah of Dallas-based Hamilton Wingo lead the trial team in the multi-week trial.

Punitive Damages Verdict Follows Forged Document Evidence

Jurors in Dallas County Court at Law No. 5 awarded Mr. Jackson’s clients $7.3 billion in damages after finding Charter 90 percent liable for the death of Ms. Thomas, 83, who was killed in 2019 by one of the company’s repair technicians who stole her credit cards before going on a spending spree. The technician, Roy Holden, pled guilty to murder and was sentenced to life in prison in April 2021.

Evidence in the trial showed that Charter officials failed to conduct a proper background check, which would have revealed a series of troubling actions by Mr. Holden at prior jobs. The company also ignored Mr. Holden’s multiple pleas to supervisors about his worsening financial problems and personal issues.

Prior to awarding the multibillion-dollar punitive damages award, the jury was presented with evidence that Charter attempted to use forged documents to prevent the case from being tried in public.

Based in Dallas, The Law Offices of Brad Jackson provides decades of experience representing clients in Texas and across the nation. Brad Jackson is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. The firm handles many types of business disputes, as well as cases involving serious personal injury and wrongful death.

 

Law Offices of Brad Jackson Wins Judgment Against City of Dallas

Experienced business litigation attorneys Brad Jackson and Cheryl Mann, assisted by associate attorney Patrick Fang, all of Dallas’ The Law Offices of Brad Jackson, have won a judgment of more than $656,000 against the City of Dallas in a real estate dispute over a strip of valuable land along Mockingbird Lane. With the addition of prejudgment interest, the total amount due under the judgment exceeds $850,000.

Mr. Jackson and Ms. Mann successfully represented real estate developer 6101 Mockingbird, LLC in the lawsuit after the City of Dallas demanded a 10-foot strip of land as a condition of approving the owners’ request for a plat to permit the redevelopment of two adjoining lots, which the company argued was an “illegal taking.”

Mr. Jackson and Ms. Mann defeated the city’s attempts to have the case dismissed by winning a key ruling from the Fifth Court of Appeals in Dallas that cleared the way for a trial.

Judgment Includes Actual Damages, Attorneys’ Fees

The trial’s first phase was conducted in September when the court found that the city was liable to the company for taking the land. The damages phase of the trial occurred in December, with a final ruling issued in favor of Mr. Jackson’s and Ms. Mann’s client on December 23.

In the final judgment, Hon. Judge Juan Renteria of County Court at Law No. 5 ordered the City of Dallas to pay $327,603 in actual damages plus prejudgment interest of 7 percent beginning Dec. 2, 2015. The city was additionally ordered to pay $328,617.50 in attorneys’ fees and approximately $25,000 in fees for expert witnesses. If the city unsuccessfully appeals the case, it will be liable for 6101 Mockingbird’s appellate attorney fees, potentially totaling nearly $100,000.
