Bobby and Amanda Messer v. Hampden Coal Company, LLC

Case Number:
Case Issue:

Plaintiffs below appeal circuit court's order denying their motion for new trial, arguing that the circuit court erred in refusing to strike a prospective juror for cause, where such individual 1) stated opinions during voir dire that potentially conflicted with those of Plaintiffs' electrical engineering expert and 2) possessed such professional education, training and experience in the field of electrical engineering that his presence upon the jury would have caused his opinions to unduly influence the jury's deliberations on the central issue in the case.
