Victim Files Suit in Opposition to Jury ‘Trading’ Damage Award Estimates

February 4, 2011

Should a judge grant a new trial to plaintiff whose damage award may have been impacted by jurors who allegedly “traded answers” about appropriate compensation? Judge Bob Wortham in Port Arthur, Texas, faces this question in Erika Arceneaux’s case against Tina Tran’s nail salon. According to Arceneaux (and the jury from the first trial), unsanitary conditions in Tran’s nail salon infected Arceneaux’s foot. Now, Arceneaux’s attorney has filed a motion for a new trial, arguing that the jury violated court orders when it negotiated between counts about the plaintiff’s proper relief.


Arceneaux’s claim is a unique one. If you’ve been injured, you need an attorney who not only knows the law, but also pursues compensation for your claim with vigor and innovation.
