One of the Biggest Defense Verdicts of the Year - 2001
In 2001 Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly selected a case in which Attorney Jeff Clark was one of the trial attorneys who represented the City of Brockton, Massachusetts to be one of the biggest defense verdicts of the year. Attorney Clark was co-counsel for the city in a case in which the plaintiffs claimed the use of pepper spray indoors constituted excessive force under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 because its use affected not only individuals involved in a disturbance, but other innocent bystanders. At trial in the U.S.District Court of Massachusetts, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the City of Brockton.
One of the Most Important Opinions of the Year - 1998
In 1998 Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly designated a case in which Attorney Jeff Clark was appellate counsel for an automobile insurer to be one of the most important opinions of the year. The Appellate Division of the Massachusetts District Court affirmed a judgment of the trial court in favor of an automobile insurer finding the insurance policy was void from inception as a result of fraud in application relating to fictitious driver’s license information provided on the policy application.
