Cuevas vs. Trotline, Martinez, et al.
Motion for summary judgment granted in favor of defendants. David McCann represented the defendant trucking company and its driver in this two-vehicle accident that occurred in October 1997. Plaintiff, an 18-year-old passenger in a vehicle operated by a co-defendant, claims to have sustained various closed head injuries when her vehicle traveled through a stop sign into the path of defendant's vehicle. The court granted the motion for summary judgment of Trotline and Martinez, finding that a prior arbitration award against the driver of plaintiff's vehicle, which had been reduced to judgment, barred the continued prosecution of this action.
