Terrance Miller and Elizabeth Moyo featured in DRI newsletter

A recent defense win for Yamaha Motor Corp. USA, secured by Terrance Miller and Elizabeth Moyo, was featured in the Nov. 19, 2014 issue of The Voice, DRI’s weekly e-newsletter. The Voice article summarizes the appellate victory in Adkins v. Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, in which the 4th District Court of Appeals of Ohio awarded summary judgment to Yamaha, affirming the trial court’s decision. The decision was due in large part to the plaintiff’s failure to present expert testimony to support his claim his Yamaha Rhino (an off-road recreational vehicle) was defective in its design. "This appellate decision is significant for the defense bar as it is an example of the type of complex product liability case that truly requires expert testimony," the article said.
