BUFFALO, N.Y.- Cellino & Barnes co-founder, Steve Barnes joined WBEN Radio Tuesday and Wednesday to lend his legal expertise on the civil trial against Dr. James Corasanti, which resulted in a settlement out of court. The settlement terms were not disclosed.
“There’s always an interest for both sides to get a case settled because of the nature of the [jury] system,” Barnes said. “Well over 95 percent of the cases are settled before the trial and of those that go to trial, 95 percent of those are settled before a verdict.”
Corasanti struck and killed an 18-year-old woman while driving drunk in July 2011. The next year, Corasanti was convicted of a misdemeanor DWI but was acquitted of manslaughter charges. Corasanti spent eight months in jail.
