Everyone knows that drinking and driving don't mix - neither, apparently, do cell phones and driving.
A Virginia jury recently awarded $2 million to the family of a 15-year-old girl who was struck and killed by an attorney who was driving erratically while talking on her cell phone.
The defendant's employer, Cooley Godward, which has offices in Richmond, VA, also settled with the family for an undisclosed sum, after the family argued it was responsible because the defendant was conducting work for the firm on her cell phone when she hit and killed the teenager.
A similar result could be reached in Rhode Island.
