The Court decided four issues: (1) Whether a deceased’s blood alcohol content (BAC) may be submitted to show his comparative negligence in a wrongful death action; (2) whether a district court abuses its discretion by allowing an expert to testify based on an allegedly unreliable report; (3) whether a jury’s damages award should be reduced based on comparative negligence before or after imposing a statutory damage cap; and (4) whether awards for attorney fees may include charges for nonattorney staff.
