Woodbury v. Nichols

In Woodbury v. Nichols, 797 P.2d 556 (Wyo. 1990), a wrongful death case, this Court determined that "appellate courts should interfere with such a verdict only where the evidence of damages is uncontradicted. " Id. at 558. During the Woodbury trial, conflicting evidence was presented regarding the personal relationship between the deceased and the individual family members involved in the action. Under the unique facts of that case, it ultimately was determined that "the conscience of this court is not shocked nor can we conclude that the zero damage award was inadequate as a matter of law." Id. at 559.
