Edwards and his partner were on the cutting edge of tort litigation before the political bug bit him and he sold his partnership interest in the practice. He was an unknown until he got his first multi-million dollar award on behalf of his client.
Someone at his firm, and I do not believe it will be Edwards, will look at the media reports, court records for the amotion, public records from County Council meetings as well as email records. They'll know pretty quickly whether a case can be made.
This would never go to trial. The county's insurance company will work hard to avoid an actual court appearance.
I would not be surprised to see county disregard for not considering his disability which takes you to a federal level and higher dollars.
And, they will take a significant percentage of any judgement awarded.
He may be intellectually challenged; but Berger went to the right law firm. And they have plenty of time to file a case.
