Appeals Court Overturns Damages For Elko Couple

A federal appeals court for the second time has overturned a multimillion dollar punitive damages award for an Elko couple whose son was killed when the brakes on their Ford pickup truck failed.

The court said a lower court judge in Reno didn't give proper instructions to the jury to ensure they wouldn't consider others hurt by the faulty brakes when awarding punitive damages to Ginny and Jimmie White.
