A Military Pro Bono Project Volunteer Helped Marine Dismiss Lawsuit

March 13, 2012

A young Marine scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan received notice that he had a civil claim against him of over $200,000. The claim was brought by the Marine’s insurance company, alleging that the Marine was negligent in operating a vehicle, causing over $200,000 in damages. However, at the time of the accident, the Marine was not in the state where the accident occurred and he did not even have a driver’s license. The ABA Military Pro Bono Project successfully located a volunteer attorney to help this Marine. This attorney was able to clear up this matter and the action was dismissed. It was discovered that one of the Marine’s relatives, with a similar name, was the actual individual involved in this accident.
