Martin has won a second reversal for the plaintiff in a wrongful death case involving a water truck rollover. In a prior appeal, the Court of Appeal reversed a judgment in favor of the defendant due to jury instruction and evidentiary errors. In the appeal decided today, the Court of Appeal reversed another judgment because the jury rendered a compromise verdict and the court gave a defective special verdict form.
