Defense Victory: SUMMARY JUDGMENT MOTION GRANTED IN $10M NEGLIGENCE CASE

Call & Jensen’s attorneys obtained a complete defense victory for their client when the Orange County Superior Court granted summary judgment against the plaintiffs in a hotly-contested toxic tort lawsuit. The plaintiffs, former Oakley employees, were represented by Michael Alder of AlderLaw, one of the most winning plaintiffs’ law firms in California. Plaintiffs alleged damages in excess of $10 million and a lifetime inability to work due to their alleged exposure to fumes via a printing machine installed at Oakley’s facilities. On the eve of trial and after extensive briefing on the issues, the Court granted Call & Jensen’s summary judgment motion. In its 12-page order, the court agreed with Call & Jensen that there was no foundation to Plaintiffs’ accusations against the firm’s client. Call & Jensen had previously prevailed on a separate summary adjudication motion in this action and, with this second victory, successfully terminated the lawsuit in its entirety.
