Verdict for the Defendant in Auto Collision
Ekeke v. Thompkins
Fulton County State Court
Civil Action No. 96VS0118029
Plaintiff alleged he was driving straight through an intersection and had a green light when the Defendant, driving in the opposite direction, failed to yield while turning left and caused a collision, which resulted in injuries to the Plaintiff. Defendant Thompkins, represented by Lee Pruett, argued she waited to turn left under a green light in the intersection, that the light turned yellow, then red, and she proceeded to clear the intersection and complete her left turn when Plaintiff came into the intersection under a red light and caused the collision. The jury agreed and rendered a verdict for Defendant. Defense verdict, 2002.
