It took the jury less than two hours to find in favor of the defendants, Lindskov Ranch General Partnership of Isabel and Kempton Olney, in a personal injury suit in Fourth Circuit Court in Timber Lake last week.

The judge sent the case to the jury with their final instructions at about 10 a.m. Friday, October 4 and they returned their verdict at 11:45. The decision was unanimous, although only a 10-2 decision was required in the civil case.

Jerry and Wanda Hamersley filed the lawsuit in 2014, alleging that the injuries Jerry sustained when a hay bale fell on him on November 17, 2011 were due to the negligence of Kempton Olney, an employee of the Lindskov Ranch. The Lindskovs’ attorney argued that it was not their fault.
