LEGAL PROFESSION a woman who claimed that her attorney botched her products liability case was awarded $488,875 by a Honolulu jury on March 20. June Barnedo lost three fingers on the job. She and her husband retained Erlinda Dominguez to handle the tort suit. The couple claimed that she was negligent in not serving the Japanese manufacturer pursuant to the Hague Convention and that she failed to name its local Hawaii import/export company as a defendant. Dominguez also failed to pursue collection of a default judgment she had obtained against the manufacturer, although she told her clients she was doing so. Barnedo v. Dominguez, No. 99-2847-07 VSM (Honolulu Co., Hawaii, Cir. Ct.). PLAINTIFFS’ ATTORNEY: Francis T. O’Brien, Honolulu DEFENSE ATTORNEY: Roy K.S. Chang, Honolulu Source: National Jury Verdict Reporter
