Nicholas Rowley Wins Impressive $4 Million Verdict in Iowa

Nick Rowley, a partner at Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, obtained a nearly $4 million verdict in Iowa for his client, Cheryl Bronson, who is the aunt of Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson East. Bronson was struck by a drunk driver, Ryan Foley, who pleaded guilty to criminal DUI charges and who also admitted liability for the accident, leaving the jury to determine the amount of damages Bronson was to receive. The defendant’s attorney offered $450,000 but the jury ultimately decided that Bronson should receive $3.5 million in compensatory damages and $425,000 in punitive damages.
