Shipley Snell Wins Jury Trial for Marathon Petroleum Company

In February 2016, Joel Montgomery and Laina Miller successfully represented Marathon Petroleum Company and one of its subsidiaries in a jury trial in Galveston County, Texas.  Marathon and its subsidiary were sued by a contractor that was hired to dismantle and remove a unit from Marathon’s Galveston Bay Refinery.  The contractor brought claims for breach of contract, tortious interference, and negligence in managing the progress of the project.  After a week-long trial, the jury returned a take-nothing verdict, resulting in a total victory for Marathon and its subsidiary.
