Summary

A Texas state court jury has rejected a $750,000 lawsuit against a demolition company brought by the family of a construction worker killed in a roof collapse during the demolition of an elementary school building, finding that the company wasn't grossly negligent and the worker failed to follow standard safety procedures.

A 12-member jury deliberated for less than a day before returning a unanimous verdict in favor of Lloyd D. Nabors Demolition LLC on February 25 following a three-day trial. The jury agreed the company had no responsibility for the death of Antonio Rayo in 2014 while he was working on a project at Las Colina Elementary School, where a brick facade was being taken down using an excavator machine.
