Sherman trial

Last Thursday was back in trial in Sherman to assist Becca Skupin of our firm’s Sherman office try a case before Judge Mazzant, who had appointed her to represent a pro se plaintiff. (By “assist” I mean sit there and do basically nothing but be proud of the fine job she was doing. Although I did help make sure the laptop was charging properly). The voir dire was particularly good – she got ten out of a panel of 35 excused for cause.

This was our third trial with Judge Mazzant in the past year and my seventh overall – the other four were patent cases with Judge Gilstrap in Marshall. Unlike the first two in Sherman – which were two-week trials – this one only took two days, and the jury returned a verdict midafternoon Friday.
