In an unusual case from 2010,  the Supreme Court of Maine has upheld a jury finding in Superior Court which resulted in an award of zero to a plaintiff who sought recovery for injuries sustained in an automobile collision.

The parties agreed that the defendant’s negligence was the sole cause of the collision, but the court found that the jury was justified in awarding no damages where there was evidence that the plaintiff had engaged in a number of rather strenuous physical activities following the accident.
