Jury Verdict Against a Landlord Arising out of a Shooting by a Neighbor at the Plaintiffs

Combined $180,640 verdict for three plaintiffs. The neighbor had a long history of violent, erratic behavior, and the landlord refused to evict him or let the plaintiff out of her lease, forcing them to live next to each other. One plaintiff was physically injured but survived with no major long-lasting injury. Reversed by the court of appeals, with an appeal pending in the Texas Supreme Court.
