We've discussed lead paint poisoning before, here. Three new verdicts and appellate court decisions have been issued in New York in favor of children poisoned by lead pain ingestion and suffering resultant brain damage.

In the latest case, a Kings County jury determined that there was peeling or chipping paint in a one year old boy's apartment and that his exposure brought about lead paint poisoning. As a result, the boy's brain was damaged and he became impulsive and distractible. The jury awarded him $1,000,000 for pain and suffering ($400,000 past, $600,000 future) but in a decision on a post-trial motion last week in Zandre T. v. Beulah Church of God in Christ Jesus, Inc. the judge ordered a reduction to $600,000 ($240,000 past, $360,000 future).
