County Nueces County Trials

At Brock Person Guerra Reyna, we have tried hundreds of cases over the years, too many to include in this website. We have, however, chosen to include each of those cases governed by a jury verdict where the amount sought was in excess of $500,000. It is important to note that we have included every case tried under this broad category, not just select verdicts.

Lopez v. Days Inn (Nueces County) Plaintiff was killed in his hotel room by non-guests of the Days Inn. The hotel advertised security from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., although the guard clocked out at 3:48 a.m. on the day of the murder. According to the medical examiner, the Plaintiff was killed between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. The Plaintiff contended that the presence of a security guard would have deterred the murderers and prevented the killing. The Plaintiff asked the jury to award $2,000,000. The pre-trial demand was $750,000. The pre-trial offer was $30,000. The jury returned a zero verdict in favor of the Defendant (assessing 100% negligence on the Plaintiff).
