Trial: Aikens v. Mays & Hoover, Jefferson County District Court, March 2014

Plaintiff claimed our clients trespassed on his land and cut down 13 trees. Plaintiff brought claims for trespass, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and wrongful prosecution based on his arrest for allegedly assaulting one of the Defendants. Our clients admitted to trespass and to cutting down three trees on his property and denied all other claims. Plaintiff claimed it would cost $3000 to replace each tree. Plaintiff’s last settlement demand before trial was for $75,000. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the Plaintiff for $9,000 for the cut trees (awarding for only the three trees our clients admitted to cutting) and for $7,500 against each Defendant for the wrongful prosecution claim.
