After the four-day trial, one of the jurors called it a “heartbreaking” case, even as he and his fellow panelists took only two and a half hours to award the plaintiff $1.7 million. One board member of the defendant company said of the case before the trial, “I think it’s morally offensive.” Just days after the jury award was upheld on appeal, the plaintiff’s lawyer told me, with what I sensed was rueful disappointment, “I’d guess both sides spent close to a million dollars on the litigation.”
