$3.4 million jury verdict for his client injured when the pleasure boat on which he was riding collided with a barge under Blanding Bridge. Verdict upheld at 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta. The precedent-setting case established that alcohol as a factor involved in a maritime event can be held to be a non-issue when the facts establish that the collision was otherwise unavoidable.

A Jacksonville construction company was ordered Monday to pay $19.2 million to eight people injured when the boat they were on slammed into a dimly lit barge in the Cedar River three years ago.
