Judge Denies Motion for New Trial

Warren Circuit Judge Tom Lewis has denied a motion for a new trial made by Republic Services. Last December, a jury awarded the family of Shannon Houchin more than $27,000,000 in damages, saying Republic was liable for her injuries when her car crashed into one of their garbage trucks parked on the wrong side of a Warren County road on Thanksgiving Day 2002.

Houchin was in a coma for 57 days, and still suffers from brain damage.

Monday, Judge Lewis ruled Republic's claims for a new trial were without merit.

Republic's attorney, David Broderick, is strongly considering an appeal.
