Wrongful Termination Verdict Affirmed by Supreme Court of Texas

On September 3rd, 2022, the Texas Supreme Court denied a petition to review a $1.7 million dollar judgement in favor of Doyle Dennis LLP’s client Joseph Ball against Alleyton Resource Company LLC. The judgement owed to our client will now also include approximately $266,913 in post judgment interest accumulated during the appeal of the verdict.
Doyle Dennis LLP attorneys originally presented the case of Ball v. Alleyton Resource Company LLC in July of 2019 to a Fort Bend County District Court jury. The jury found in the Plaintiff’s favor with a verdict of $1,706,187. The verdict awarded Mr. Ball approximately $1,706,187 in total damages, which includes $164,168, in past lost wages, $675,519 in future lost wages, $100,000 in past mental anguish, $16,500 in future mental anguish, and $750,000 in punitive damages. Alleyton appealed this verdict, and on June 3rd, 2021 the Fourteenth Court of Appeals, in Houston, Texas, affirmed the initial judgment in favor of Doyle Dennis LLP and their client Joseph Ball.
Mr. Ball worked for Alleyton Resources as a ready-mix concrete truck driver for nearly a decade. He unfortunately suffered an on-the-job injury and instituted worker’s compensation proceedings regarding the matter. Mr. Ball was then terminated as a result. Chapter 451 of the Texas Labor Code expressly prohibits retaliation or discrimination against employees for filing a workers’ compensation claim in good faith. Doyle Dennis LLP was retained to litigate the wrongful termination claim on behalf of Mr. Ball and his family. During the trial, Doyle Dennis LLP’s team submitted evidence that Alleyton violated its own policies, concealed the motive for Mr. Ball’s termination, contradicted its basis for the termination, and failed to accurately and timely document the termination. As part of the verdict, Doyle Dennis LLP and their client are entitled to substantial pre and post judgment interest and costs.
