The New Mexico Supreme Court upheld a $165 million jury verdict in favor of a family who was injured in a fatal accident involving a FedEx delivery truck, finding that a successor trial court judge did not err in denying the defendant’s motion for a new trial.

In the early morning hours of June 22, 2011, a FedEx Ground tractor-trailer driven by Elizabeth Quintana crashed at a high rate of speed into a small pickup truck carrying Marialy Morga, as well as her young daughter and son.
