Michigan Court of Appeal and Michigan Supreme Court Uphold Complete Saginaw County Defense Verdict in its Entirety

Published: June 21, 2010

On June 21, 2010, the Michigan Court of Appeals upheld a February 2009 Saginaw County jury verdict in favor of Anderson NWTT, LLC and its owner. During the trial, Plaintiff asserted that he was entitled to half of the RV dealership business based on a “handshake” deal and more than $850,000 from Defendants. After the jury’s verdict in Defendants’ favor, the trial court awarded Defendants $119,350 in attorney fees and costs. The Defendants were defended by McGraw Morris P.C. attorneys Thomas J. McGraw and Stacy J. Belisle. Plaintiff appealed the jury verdict to the Michigan Court of Appeals, asserting that he was entitled to a new trial because the court improperly allowed evidence of Plaintiff’s character to be introduced to the jury and that it improperly failed to issue a jury instruction regarding the character of another witness. The Court of Appeals rejected all of Plaintiff’s claims and upheld the jury’s verdict in its entirety. On September 27, 2010, the Michigan Supreme Court denied Plaintiff’s application to appeal the Court of Appeals’ decision.
