$3.6 Million Verdict Won for Lite Machines Corp. in Legal Malpractice Case

Ronald Waicukauski and Carol Nemeth represented the plaintiff, Lite Machines Corp., in a legal malpractice claim brought against the Lafayette law firm of Bennett, Boehning & Clary.  The malpractice claim arose out of the Bennett firms’ representation of Lite Machines in a prior lawsuit brought by Lite Machines against Techno, Inc. Lite Machines alleged that in the prior case, the Bennett firm failed to perform adequate legal research, failed to take needed depositions, failed to cross-examine the opposing expert witness, and failed to present rebuttal evidence or argument and because of these failures, Lite Machines had not obtained the recovery from Techno to which they were entitled.  The legal malpractice case went to trial in Boone Circuit Court in June 2004 and after eight days of testimony and argument, the jury returned a verdict in favor of Lite Machines in the amount of $3,612,574.
