PSBR partner Rahul Ravipudi and firm attorneys Ian Samson, and Adam Ellis of Panish | Shea | Ravipudi LLP obtained an $8,000,000 jury verdict in Clark County District Court for a Nevada man who suffered significant internal injuries after he was served and ingested what he believed was a Honey Blonde Ale but was actually a chemical cleaning compound left in the tap lines. Plaintiff was also represented in the matter by co-counsel, Andre M. Lagomarsino of Lagomarsino Law.
On December 18, 2018, Plaintiff Lon Enwright, a 38-year-old special education teacher in Clark County, visited Barley’s Casino & Brewing Company in Henderson, Nevada to watch a football game. Barley’s is operated by Town Center Amusements, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Station Casinos. A Barley’s bartender offered him a sample of Honey Blonde Ale, but, unbeknownst to Dr. Enwright, the sample contained a dangerous chemical cleaning solution. Although Barley’s staff knew the lines were out of service for cleaning, the bartender offered Dr. Enwright the sample.
