Charla Aldous Wins Two of 2010's Largest Texas Verdicts

Top Texas Verdicts of 2010 was recently published by Verdict Search, a service that tracks and reports verdicts, in the May 23, 2011 issue of Texas Lawyer. Two of this year’s top cases were attributed to Charla Aldous of the Aldous \ Walker. One of these cases was named the largest discrimination verdict in Texas in 2010.

Discrimination Case

Naiel Nassar, M.D. v. University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, et al., No. 3:08-cv-1337, was 2010’s largest discrimination verdict and 69th largest verdict overall in the state of Texas. This case, which took place in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, involved a Muslim doctor from Egypt who was discriminated against at the hospital where he worked after he refused to participate in fraudulent billing practices.

Commercial Litigation Case

Giovanni Homes Corp. v. Oncor Electric Delivery Co. LLC, No. 048-233043-08, was Texas’ 93rd largest verdict for the year 2010. This case involved a breach of contract and unlawful trespass lawsuit by a major developer against the utilities provider Oncor Electric, which failed to remove an underground power line for almost two years after agreeing to do so, holding up production and preventing the Arlington-area developer from using the purchased land. Ms. Aldous represented Giovanni Homes in the case, and achieved an $1.8 million verdict on their behalf.
