|Reported Cases||Representative Matter: Cab Company Not Guilty of Negligence in Jury Trial; In December 2014, after five weeks of trial, Kevin Roche won a jury trial at the Stamford Superior Court, representing a well-established taxi service in the matter of Brenda Snell v. Norwalk Yellow Cab, Inc. Yellow Cab driver, Johnley Sainval, parked his cab at Monterrey Village, a housing complex in Norwalk, CT, and left the cab with the keys in the ignition. While the cab was left unattended, two teenagers, with little driving experience, stole the taxi from the housing complex and drove it to Stamford. In Stamford they were involved in a minor car accident and in an attempt to flee the scene, the driver drove up on the sidewalk striking and severely injuring the plaintiff, Ms. Snell. Ms. Snell alleged negligence on the part of the cab driver for leaving the keys in the ignition. The jury found for the defendant after two hours of deliberations.|
