test-$8.5 Million in Judgments from Methadone-Related Car Accident

$8.5 Million in Judgments from Methadone-Related Car Accident: Represented the families of two young men killed in a traffic collision caused by a methadone-impaired driver.  After a motion to dismiss, the families’ claims against the methadone clinic for negligent practices went forward following a “first-of-its-kind” ruling in Minnesota, in which the district court found that the clinic had a duty to protect the public from its improper treatment practices. After over two years of litigation and shortly before trial, the clinic agreed to confess judgment, be adjudicated negligent, and to assign all claims against its insurance companies two weeks prior to a scheduled jury trial.  Insurance coverage continues to be actively litigated.
