New York City Transit Authority hit with a large verdict, appeal likely.

The New York City Transit Authority was hit with a $28.5 million dollar verdict yesterday. The jury found the conductor negligent when he hit Alice Huang who was stopped picking up her bible. One of her legs was caught between a car and the platform.

The City is likely to appeal the verdict. Unfortunately,it is unlikely that the final settlement amount, which is usually far smaller, will ever be publicized.
