"We are pleased that the appellate court has upheld the jury's decision to hold a company accountable for its actions," says Mr. Ball.
"The victims and families have been suffering from Cooper's decisions for nearly six years, and they are now one step closer to justice," says Mr. Farrar. "While no amount of money can heal or bring back a loved one, our hope is that this decision sends a clear message to every company that they must protect customers' safety."
