Butler Snow attorneys Michael L. Brown and Arthur D. Spratlin, Jr. recently obtained a judgment in favor of our client, JATRAN (the public bus system for the City of Jackson), following a bench trial on December 3-5, 2012, before Judge Jeff Weill in Hinds County Circuit Court. The case involved personal injury claims brought by two passengers on the bus, arising from a motor vehicle accident between the JATRAN bus and a City of Jackson Dump Truck. Plaintiffs’ alleged various injuries as a result of the accident. The Court found no liability on the part of JATRAN, and assessed all fault and damages to our Co-Defendant, the City of Jackson, based on a finding of 100% negligence attributable to the driver of the City Dump Truck.
