Representation of Manufacturer of Commercial Oven That Caused Bakery Fire

Medina v. APV. This case involved a fire in a bakery in Michigan. There was a $25 million subrogation claim filed on behalf of the insurer, a second wrongful death case filed, and a third lawsuit filed by Kellogg’s for lost profits. We represented the manufacturer of the oven who allegedly installed the oven too close to the wooden building. All three cases were dismissed pursuant to dispositive motions filed by Haight. The dismissals were upheld on appeal by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
