Last month, Massachusetts’ highest court upheld a $4.4 million award to the family of a man who died in a bus accident involving a large security gate arm that hit a bus transporting spectators between a golf tournament and Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium.
The tragic bus crash occurred in 2003 and killed a 64-year-old Yarmouth man. Five more people injured in the bus accident.
Although the judge violated a mandate not to allow jurors to discuss the case among themselves before deliberation, the state Supreme Judicial Court upheld the original ruling, saying the judge’s error did not prejudice the companies being sued.
