Martini, ex rel., Dussault v. Stat

(2004)  A driver who crashed into a nearly stopped semi-truck near midnight in a construction area on I-5 sued the State and the construction contractor for negligence in signing the construction zone, and the trucking company. The trial court granted summary judgment to the trucking company, and a jury found in favor of the State and the contractor.  The Court of Appeals reversed the summary judgment in favor of the trucking company and reversed the verdict in favor of the State because a State employee was allowed to serve on the jury, which the Court of Appeals found violated a statute that prohibits employees of an adverse party from serving as jurors.
