LISBON - A Columbiana County Common Pleas Court jury found in favor of the defendant Fred D. Looman, Salineville, following a civil trial, which lasted less than day and a half on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Robert L. Cehrs, East Liverpool, was seeking in excess of $25,000 for injuries alleged and $15,000 for damages alleged to his vehicle, a 2005 Chevrolet station wagon. Cehrs was claiming Looman negligently drove into Cehrs' vehicle on Oct. 5, 2010 on Harvey Avenue in East Liverpool.
However, the jury of eight determined Looman was not negligent.
It was the second time in two weeks a jury had made the determination in favor of the defendant in a traffic-related civil lawsuit in Columbiana County Common Pleas court.
