He experienced double vision, dizziness, and other related symptoms leading to eye muscle surgery to correct his vision deficits. The Jury deliberated one hour and forty-five minutes before returning its verdict after a one-week long trial.

This represents the most recent in a continuing string of favorable verdicts recieved by Mr. Schwaner in Cook and the surrounding counties.
