The defense lawyer on the losing side of the $352 million verdict returned Monday said on Tuesday that he is working on the appeal.

“We were shocked with the size of the verdict,” Rusty Hardin of Rusty Hardin & Associates in Houston told Tuesday. He defended the case with S. Brad Brown of Jackson Walker in Dallas. They represented Allied Aviation and its lead fuel supervisor Reginald Willis, the driver whose van hit a ramp service agent on the job at George Bush Intercontinental Airport.
