Summary

A California state court jury awarded $1.3 million on Thursday to the husband of a woman who died in a rollover accident after her car struck a roadside cement box, finding the City of Redlands to be responsible for unsafe road conditions that caused her death.

The 12-member jury deliberated over three days following a trial that began October 6. They awarded $2 million to plaintiff Sheldon Alechman, according to a Courtroom View Network webcast of the trial, but found his wife Sandy to be 35 percent responsible for her own death. Therefore the actual damages awarded will be reduced to $1.3 million.
