DB&J receives highest verdict ever in St. Louis County for Client

A St. Louis County jury has awarded $48.4 million to an energy company that sued Chicago Title Insurance Co. for negligence.

The award appears to be the largest plaintiff verdict ever in St. Louis County and is also the state's largest plaintiff verdict this year, according to a review of Missouri Lawyers Weekly's V&S Search database.

St. Louis County Circuit Court doesn't keep historical records of verdict amounts, administrator Paul Fox explained. But Missouri Lawyers Weekly in 2008 reported on a $21 million verdict for a man paralyzed in a car wreck that was at the time thought to be the largest personal injury award in the county court's history.
