DANIEL KATZENBACH (Raleigh) obtained a hung jury result at trial where he represented a trucking defendant in a motor vehicle personal injury case. The trial judge refused to send the issue of contributory negligence to the jury over the objection of Mr. Katzenbach. The contributory negligence issue seemed to be the only realistic chance for a defense verdict. However, the jury could not reach a consensus on the liability issues in the case.
The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
