Strauss and Baker successfully defend client in restaurant fire case

Scott Strauss and Jonathan Baker successfully defended the installer of a soup well in a restaurant fire case in a week-long jury trial.  A restaurant owner had alleged that the installer had negligently installed an electric soup well in the restaurant, which resulted in a fire.  The restaurant owner sought damages of $1.5 million.  Strauss and Baker argued there was no evidence of defective installation.  The jury agreed and found in favor of the installer.
