Eron Cannon and Mark Melter force nominal damage award in admitted liability case. In September 2021, Eron Cannon and Mark Melter successfully defended a local apartment owner in Kitsap County Superior Court before the Honorable Melissa Hemstreet. The plaintiff alleged permanent injuries, including nerve damage and foot drop, resulting from a stairwell fall at his apartment complex. The defendants admitted liability for the fall, but contested the injuries. Despite the plaintiff’s request for over $2 million in damages, the jury awarded less than $20,000.
