PARTNER JOSH WALKER WINS DISMISSAL OF MASS SHOOTING CLAIMS
Partner Josh Walker won dismissals of several lawsuits related to a mass shooting incident that tragically resulted in numerous fatalities and injuries. Numerous victims and families of victims filed suit based upon a failure to warn theory of liability. Drawing upon established case law throughout the country and the state of Florida, Josh successfully argued that there is no recognized duty to warn of the potential dangerousness of a mental health patient. The dismissals with prejudice at the outset of the claims resulted in a favorable outcome for the client and the saving of significant defense costs and attorney’s fees.
