Levinger PC Represents Plaintiffs in Three of the Top 100 U.S. Jury Verdicts in 2017

March 1, 2018 in News

Of the top 100 United States jury verdicts recently reported by ALM Media in its 2017 VerdictSearch, Levinger PC represents the Plaintiffs in the cases ranked 1st, 22nd, and 51st. Summaries of the three cases can be read here:

  1. Hopper v. JPMorgan Chase Bank: The adult children and second wife of a prominent information technology executive obtained a multi-billion dollar verdict of actual and punitive damages after a Dallas County probate court jury found that JPMorgan, the estate’s independent administrator, breached fiduciary duties and acted negligently by delaying the distribution of assets and spending the estate’s money on its own attorney’s fees. After being retained by the adult children to handle the post-verdict and appellate proceedings, Jeff Levinger initiated negotiations with JPMorgan and settled the claims for a confidential sum.
  2. Bagwell v. BBVA Compass: A residential property developer and his limited partnerships obtained a verdict in excess of $85 million after a Dallas County district court jury found that BBVA Compass defrauded him by failing to disclose that it had recently agreed to sell his partnerships’ loans to a competing developer, which then foreclosed on the properties and destroyed the developer’s livelihood. Levinger PC represented the developer in a previous appeal from a summary-judgment dismissal of the case, and assisted trial lawyer Derrick Boyd in the post-remand proceedings and at trial.
  3. Chohan, et al. v. New Prime, Inc.: Two families obtained a verdict of nearly $39 million after a Dallas County court at law jury found that a trucking company and its driver were negligent in causing a multi-vehicle crash on an icy road that led to deaths and multiple injuries. Both families retained Jeff Levinger to assist the trial lawyers, Micky Das and Tim Dollar, in connection with the post-verdict proceedings and appeal.
