Recent Supreme Court Victory For Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A. Client
The lawyers at Chhabra & Gibbs, P.A. are proud to celebrate a victory for our client at the Mississippi Supreme Court this week. After a hard fought medical malpractice trial, the jury got the wrong legal instructions provided to them by the court bailiff. The instructions provided to the jury were not that instructions argued between the parties and approved by the Judge. The jury did exactly as the wrong instructions told them to do and found in favor of the Doctor as all of the provided instructions said “you must find for the Defense”. Our firm appealed the decision and the Supreme Court has declared that our client is entitled to a new trial. Litigants and lawyers always have to be prepared to lose, but nobody wants to lose in a way that is unfair and against the rules of the court. We are grateful the Supreme Court decided in a unanimous decision to fix the trial court error and allow our client to have a fair day in Court with a properly instructed jury.
