Stutz Trial Team Wins Defense Verdict in Rios vs. GUHSD

Stutz Artiano’s trial team won a defense verdict in a football injury case in which the demand was $30 million.  Partners Daniel Shinoff and Gil Abed represented Grossmont Union High School District in the six-week trial.  In October 2007, the Grossmont student sustained a neck injury during a junior varsity football game. With prompt action by his coaches, trainers, teachers and first responders, the student received the immediate care he required.  The student’s parents later sued the District for negligence, including those who responded to administer emergency care to the student athlete.   Rios v.
