Fed Ex 1
(Unofficial way of saying that Fed Ex won the civil case and will not owe any money after the trial this week in Wise County.)
My source is impeccable*: Complete secondhand hearsay.
Edit: Getting comments about there being a "high/low agreement." If so, it works something like this (with completely made up numbers): Prior to trial the lawyers agree to a low figure of $200,000 and and a high figure of $1,000,000. If the verdict of the jury is anywhere within that range, it stands. If less than $200,000 the Plaintiff gets $200,000. If more than $1,000,000, the Plaintiff only gets $1,000,000. It's a way of putting some absolute certainty into the jury system.
