Filiger v. LACMTA
Jury verdict for $2500 and $7200 for two plaintiffs, which didn’t exceed the CCP section 998 offers that had been made, leading to a cost bill in excess of $50,000 for the defense. Demand had been for $250,000 each. Plaintiffs claimed $13,790 and $17,598 in medical expenses. This was a matter of clear liability where the argument was over damages only.
