Oregon Court of Appeals Hears Argument in Lingual Nerve Injury Case

Today was the oral argument in Franco v Willamette Dental before the Oregon Court of Appeals. The lingual nerve injury case was originally tried to a Multnomah County jury in Portland, Oregon in June 2005 by Jane Paulson and her co-counsel. The jury awarded the full amount sought, $600,000. After nearly two years, the appellate argument was heard in Salem, Oregon. We will now wait for the Court of Appeals decision. Due to other matters being held at the same time, the argument was heard in the Tax Court in Salem, Oregon. Maureen Leonard of Portland, Oregon briefed and argued the case for us on appeal. Our client attended the hearing with Jane.
