El Campo customer awarded $300,000 in volatile dispute: Repair complaint escalated into injurious beating

Attorney Louis Hollingsworth convinced a jury to award his client, Russell James, $300,000 for his pain and suffering after he was seriously injured in a fight with three Marana El Campo Tire shop employees after complaining about a repair job. Prior to the trial James offered to settle with El Campo for $50,000, but El Campo refused and offered to pay no more than $20,000. Hollingsworth took the case to trial and more than tripled the amount James had originally asked for.
