A federal jury has ruled that a rental company was not liable for the injuries suffered by a worker in 2004 when he fell out of a bucket on a lift at the University of Mississippi.
Two men were killed during the construction accident and two others, including Steven "Pat" Nance, were seriously injured. The jury ruled Friday in favor of NES Equipment Rentals.
The lawsuit was filed by Nance in 2005.
Nance's attorney, John Giddens, said he plans to appeal the verdict.
Attorney Bill Luckett, representing NES, said there's always two sides to a story but the jury believed his client's side.
