Shuttleworth Williams attorneys, Edward Curry and Dennis Hawkins recently tried a construction case in which they were able to obtain an involuntary dismissal for their client – a local contractor – at the end of the plaintiff’s proof. At issue was whether or not a utility company properly located electrical lines before the contractor began its excavation.
A power line was struck and the utility sought property damages. During cross-examination of the utility company’s witnesses, Hawkins was able to establish that the utility could not prove that they performed the required locates in the area where the line was struck. At the close of plaintiff’s proof, Hawkins moved for and was granted an involuntary dismissal against the Plaintiff by the court.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
