Parker Hannifin obtains non-suit with prejudice in wrongful death action stemming from single-engine Cessna crash

Clients Parker Hannifin Corporation

Wrongful death claims were filed, but later voluntarily dismissed, in two separate actions in Hidalgo County, Texas (near the Mexico border) against Jones Day client Parker Hannifin Corporation and others as a result of a single-engine Cessna crash in which three individuals perished. After fact discovery, completion of plaintiff's expert deposition, and dispositive motions, Jones Day secured non-suits with prejudice from Plaintiffs.
