On October 17, 2011, the Virginia Supreme Court granted in part and denied in part Appellant’s Motion for Writ of Certiorari in the brain injury action of Gagnon v. Burns, No. 110767 c/w 110754. Its Order made part of the appellate record the Jury Special Interrogatory forwarded by the Clerk, but not the Jury Verdict form offered by the Appellant and rejected by the Judge at trial (which apparently was destroyed).

Gagnon in on appeal from Circuit Court No. CL08-572 in Circuit Court for Gloucester County, Virginia. The jury awarded more than $6,000,000.00 to the crime victim represented by Mr. Waterman against former Assistant Principal Travis Burns, the student assailant, and the student encourager.
