In November 2018, MacMillan Scholz & Marks Shareholder, Robert Scholz, successfully defended a funeral services client in a $2.5 million lawsuit in Multnomah County Circuit Court. The case involved an error in the delivery of cremated remains. Plaintiff alleged that she received the cremated remains of another family’s relative. Plaintiff sought $2.5 million for damages related to the initial error as well as alleged subsequent mishandling of them. Mr. Scholz’s client admitted that it mistakenly provided plaintiff with the incorrect cremated remains, but denied that it improperly dealt with the problem after discovery of the error. After a three-day trial, the jury returned a verdict for $16,000 on the admitted liability issue and a defense verdict on the non-admitted liability issue.
