Former Partner Lecia L. Chaney and Partner Joseph A. (Tony) Rodriguez represented Defendant Rauman Group, Inc. d/b/a Grease Monkey as the sole remaining Defendant in this wrongful death case arising out of a tire-detread accident. After having settled with Cooper Tire approximately two years before, Plaintiffs proceeded against this Defendant on the theory that it negligently failed to observe and warn of an alleged bulge in the tire during a state inspection procedure approximately forty days before the accident at issue. Trial began with jury selection on October 5, 2009, and concluded on October 8, 2009. The jury found settling party Cooper Tire 98 percent responsible, and Rauman Group, Inc. d/b/a Grease Monkey as well as Plaintiff/driver Dora Galvan each 1 percent responsible for $775,000.00 in damages. Because the settlement credit to which Rauman Group, Inc. was entitled under Texas law was larger than the damages it would have been liable for under this verdict, a take-nothing Judgment was rendered in favor of this Defendant.
