Eric Carlson obtained a defense verdict in Walworth County for a marina in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. The plaintiff presented two expert witnesses who both testified that the marina had improperly winterized the plaintiff’s boat, causing freezing and internal engine damage. The marina, through its expert, argued that the engine failure was due to the age of the engine, the number of hours it had been run, and improper maintenance by the owner. The court agreed with the marina in that if there was freezing within the engine due to improper winterization, the damage that would have occurred would have been in a different location than what was being asserted by the plaintiff. Therefore, a defense verdict was warranted.
