Monterey Partner Christine Balbo Reed, obtained a defense verdict in the Alameda Superior Court case entitled Notarmaso v. Aaron’s Inc. Plaintiff and her two year old son allegedly received bedbug bites from previously leased bedroom furniture. Plaintiffs claimed bite injuries, shame and depression relating to the exposure and property damage. During the nine days of trial, the defense aggressively attacked plaintiff’s lack of evidence that the bedbugs came from Aaron’s when the furniture was delivered at her apartment. The jury agreed with the defense and expressly found that Aaron’s was not negligent, did not breach its contract, nor did it provide an improper product to its client. Congratulations to Christine, and Aaron’s Inc. on this vindicating trial result.
