Setting the Record Straight and Restoring the Honor of a Fine Man While Making History
ALEXANDER v. Jet Fleet, Greenville, Texas
Three members of the Alexander family, including the pilot and family patriarch, died when their plane had a midair collision with a corporate aircraft over East Texas. The National Transportation Safety Board blamed both pilots and cross-litigation ensued. Rose Walker refused to concede that Mr. Alexander had been negligent causing the deaths of himself and his sons. At trial in state district court, Mr. Rose proved that the corporate aircraft was the sole cause of the collision, obtaining the largest verdict in the history of Hunt County. The verdict was upheld on appeal.
