Prout Obtains Defense Verdict in DeKalb County
As reported in an unsolicited article in the Fulton County Daily Report, Dan Prout obtained a defense verdict in the State Court of DeKalb County. The case involved a collision between an automobile and a bicyclist in which the cyclist was killed. The defense involved proving that the cyclist failed to stop for a stop sign before entering the intersection where the accident occurred as well as disproving that the motorist was speeding and driving on the wrong side of the road. Despite the plaintiff-oriented venue and an excellent case presented by plaintiff’s counsel, Mr. Prout was able to convince the jury to set aside the great amount of sympathy shown toward the cyclist and follow the evidence shown at trial.
