Stewart McCloud Secures Bench Trial Defense Verdict

On February 11, 2016, Stewart McCloud secured a bench trial defense verdict on behalf of a dentist in Jefferson County. The lawsuit arose from the dentist’s provision of dental treatment and dentures to the plaintiff. The plaintiff alleged that the dentures she received did not fit correctly. Rather than returning to the dentist to have the dentures adjusted, she filed suit for breach of contract and breach of warranty. The trial judge agreed at the close of the plaintiff’s case that the plaintiff failed to establish the standard of care allegedly breached by the defendant. The trial judge entered judgment in favor of the dentist.
