Mica Nguyen Worthy, partner in Charlotte, NC, and Taylor Sweet, associate attorney in Charlotte, NC, represented an excavator client in litigation where it was alleged the company did not exercise due care in its work, causing damage to a utility line. Mica and Taylor were able to argue for summary judgment and have the case dismissed against their client, as the case proceeded against the company that performed the location services for the utility company. Mica and Taylor evaluated the evidence in discovery, defended the client in deposition, obtained expert testimony for the client’s defense, and then ultimately prevailed on summary judgment, dismissing the case without the client having to pay a settlement.
