  • Corenbaum v. Lampkin: California Appellate Decision Further Limits Damages Evidence for Personal Injury Plaintiffs
    • The Corenbaum decision is significant insofar as judges, following Howell, have continued to allow full medical billings into evidence through the side door. This practice has allowed plaintiffs a means of requesting inflated and unjustified damages awards. Now, a plaintiff with mesothelioma will no longer be allowed to circumvent Howell and introduce evidence of the larger billed amount by suggesting such evidence is relevant on other issues, such as pain and suffering calculations. Under Corenbaum, such evidence is not relevant on any damages issues. This decision should generally result in lower average jury verdicts for personal injury plaintiffs.Read More

  • Foley & Mansfield returns from Guatemala with an overwhelming success!
    • Not all of our victories come in the courtroom and in this instance, our opponents were mostly the heat and bugs. During a span of one week, the Foley & Mansfield Foundation supported a 19-member service team who trekked to the remote mountain village of Durazno, Guatemala. The original plan was to build or repair workable latrines for this small impoverished community, but upon arrival, residents shared a greater need for smokeless stoves. Most of the village's single-room homes (composed of rudimentary materials) only had open flame fire pits that literally engulfed each home with smoke while meals were prepared. Following the week-long efforts of the F&M service team members, Durazno's families had new smokeless stoves. The team constructed ten new stoves and supplied the community with enough materials to complete another thirty smokeless stoves.Read More
