In 2005, Tae Bo creator Billy Blanks won a $30 million legal malpractice verdict against Seyfarth Shaw based on allegations that the firm failed to file court papers on time in the right venue. Earlier this week, a California appellate court found that the damage instructions were improper and sent the case back to the trial court, wiping out the huge legal malpractice verdict. Fortunately for Blanks, the finding of malpractice appears to still stand.
A plaintiff always likes going to a jury and not asking whether the plaintiff is owed something, but only asking how much.
