February 2018

Grant Curry recently obtained a defense verdict in a jury trial held in Weld County, Colorado.  White and Steele’s client in the case was a locating company accused of failing to properly locate and mark an underground natural gas pipeline resulting in the plaintiff striking the pipeline with his trencher causing a large gas explosion and fire.  Following a four-day trial, the jury returned a defense verdict holding that the locating company exercised reasonable care in locating and marking the underground natural gas pipeline.
