During the week of August 15, 2016, Allyson Aden obtained a defense verdict in favor of a local business in Fort Madison, Iowa. The Plaintiffs alleged Sears Hometown Store negligently installed a refrigerator inside the Plaintiffs’ home, causing water damage to the property. Sears Hometown Store, represented by Aden, denied Plaintiffs’ allegations and argued the property damage was not caused by Defendants’ installation. After a two-day jury trial, the Lee County jury returned a defense verdict, finding Defendant’s installation was not a cause of damage to Plaintiff’s property. The jury’s verdict did not allow recovery for Plaintiffs.
