Abigail Fleming handled a jury trial, involving an accident between a City police car and a private vehicle at a red light.  The police vehicle was on an emergency call and ran the red-light.  The Defendant’s vehicle had a green-light, but had a statutory duty to yield to the police vehicle.  The jury verdict apportioned the liability 75% - 25%, between the police officer and Defendant driver.  The jury allotted a portion of fault on the police vehicle for not waiting a safe interval of time before entering the intersection against the light, and only a portion of the fault on Defendant driver.
