Several media outlets reported on the $25 million decision, which was handed down in New York State Supreme Court by an Erie County jury. The Buffalo News reported on the verdict in a front page story. Additional media coverage of the case included WGRZ 2 On Your Side, WIVB News 4, and the New York Law Journal. You can watch the full reports from WGRZ and WIVB in the videos below.
