On 09/20/23, in Tsompanidis v. The District Board of Trustees of Tallahassee Community College, Partners, Craig Knox and Riley Landy, obtained a defense verdict after a 3-day trial in Gadsden County, Florida for The District Board of Trustees of Tallahassee Community College (TCC).
In the Complaint, the Plaintiff, Mr. Tsompanidis, alleged TCC was negligent in retaining a defensive tactics instructor at the Florida Public Safety Institute at TCC, and that TCC was liable due to the negligence of its instructors.
During the trial, a directed verdict on the negligent retention claim was granted by Judge David Frank, so the jury was left with only the simple negligence cause of action to consider.
After 30-minutes of deliberations, the Jury returned a verdict for the defense. This is another great win for the defense!
Congratulations Craig Knox, Riley Landy, and TCC!
