2008 Defense Verdict
In late March, Doug Smith received a defense verdict from a Houston County jury while representing a day care center in Warner Robins, GA. The suit was brought by the mother of a seven year old girl who was attacked by another child in the center; the child suffered severe and permanent facial injuries and alleged emotional trauma. The defense contended successfully that the center had fulfilled its duty of “watchful oversight” of the children and that the assault was unavoidable due to its sudden nature.
