Georgia Jury Awards $2.3 Million In Kroger Customer’s Suit

A jury in Gwinnett County, Ga., has awarded $2.3 million in damages after a judge determined that Kroger destroyed and manipulated key video evidence involving an injured customer. It was reported that 49-year-old Craig Walters slipped on crushed fruit on the floor of a Kroger store near Douglasville in 2008. He suffered a serious spinal cord injury in the fall.

Walters sued the grocery company for negligent maintenance of its premises. The jury returned the $2.3 million verdict after a three-day trial. Gwinnett State Court Judge Joseph Iannazzone sanctioned the company and issued an order finding Kroger had tampered with video evidence. The Cincinnati-based company says it may file an appeal. Lloyd Bell, an Atlanta , represented the Plaintiff and did a very good job.
