Last week, the New York State Supreme Court upheld a jury verdict of almost $60 million obtained by two of our partners a year earlier for a young man who suffered catastrophic burn injuries during a botched chemistry demonstration. The victim, Alomso Yanes, was burned alive after a negligent teacher poured methanol straight from a gallon jug onto a hot evaporation dish, creating a gigantic fire ball that engulfed him. Alonso who was 16 year old at the time of the accident, was awarded a record $29,585,000 for past pain and suffering and $29,585,000 for future pain and suffering in a four-week trial.
