Sofie v. Fibreboard — Even after 25 years, Sofie remains one of the most important cases for personal injury and wrongful death plaintiffs. Cited by courts throughout the country, the decision has since abolished the "cap" on damages contained in RCW 4.56.250. Listen to Paul Stritmatter and other attorneys argue before the WA State Supreme Court, which put Sofie a landmark in law.

Lacey sustained serious injuries, including a spinal cord injury. In Spring 2012, the State finally indicated readiness to fund a project for a proper lighting system.
