Smith v. Florida Rock, Superior Court of Muscogee County, Georgia. Defendant quarry knowingly and for years blasted rock onto plaintiffs’ property causing loss of use and enjoyment of that property. Proved defendants did so to save money; more prudent blasting would increase production costs.

I was in a complex premises liability case involving a multinational corporations. Mr. Butler & his associates were always three steps ahead of these defendants. When they say they are "exceptional trial lawyers," this is not just a slogan but it is a way of life.”
