Booth LLP Wins Bus Accident Case at Trial
In May 2021, Hillary Booth and Derek Lawson successfully defended a transport bus company and its driver against a complaint alleging negligence after a four-car accident took place in a busy intersection in Riverside, CA. Hillary and Derek established that an on-duty Riverside police officer's negligence was the cause of the accident, and that the firm's clients we not liable to the plaintiff. The case involved complicated legal issues concerning the immunity of the police officer and the impact of that immunity on the apportionment of liability. Plaintiff has appealed the case to the California Court of Appeals.
