CVN’s Top 10 Most Impressive Plaintiff Verdicts of 2022

Honored, that our work as Plaintiffs’ trial lawyers in Estate of Jose Ruvalcaba v. City of Victorville was selected as one of the 10 Most Impressive Plaintiff Verdicts that CVN covered in 2022. 

Why it made the list:

All of the trials on this list involved difficult questions of liability, but trials limited to damages only present sensitive and subjective issues for jurors to decide like the monetary worth of a personal relationship or of a human life itself.

Those were the questions attorney Arash Homampour had to navigate in this California state court trial that ended in a $33.85 million verdict in October for the family of a man who was killed after an altercation with three city street workers who struck him in the head with a shovel. The defense characterized Ruvalcaba as a transient drug user who did not have a close relationship with his children – two issues that we had to carefully frame for jurors.

“The jury disagreed and saw the true value of this amazing father’s love, the staggering loss to these young women and how one only needed to look at the beauty in and from them to see who he was,” Homampour told CVN after the trial.

This list is not merely a ranking of large jury awards. They took verdict amounts into consideration along with potentially challenging facts in a case, the parties and attorneys involved and potential impact on related litigation to choose the top 10 most impressive trials CVN covered in 2022 resulting in plaintiff verdicts.
