Minnegren v. NozarAnnotate this Case
After a jury concluded that Joshua B. Nozar was not negligent in connection with a two-car collision in which Sassa Minnegren was injured, Minnegren appealed the judgment. Minnegren contends that the special verdict was not supported by sufficient evidence and the trial court erred when it denied her motion for new trial, as well as appeals from the denial of her motion for judgment notwithstanding the verdict (JNOV). The court concluded that long-standing and consistent precedent teach that negligence is a question of fact where, as here, there is evidence that a driver exercised at least some care and therefore might have acted reasonably even if his or her action ultimately led to a car collision. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment and order.
