Shook & Stone
John B. Shook

John Shook tackled more serious matters, including a capital murder case against the Clark County District Attorneys most experienced prosecuting team. The case involved an assault rifle shootout with police and a devastating 911 call from the victims wife. By relentlessly focusing on the prosecutions lack of crucial evidence, winning several critical evidentiary rulings, and describing the clients history of childhood abuse and neglect, John and his team saved the accused from execution. John has continued the fight for the injured and disabled, including the case of Thomas Novick. Mr. Novick was severely injured when a 14,000+ pound Sky-Trak 5028 rough terrain forklift ran over him. Mr. Novick was pinned beneath one of the forklift tires as the driver was parking the machine, which slowly rolled backward across the lower half of Mr. Novicks body. John and his team proved the forklift operators company did not have an adequate commitment to safety. For example, the forklift driver, the brother-in-law of the company owner, was promoted to safety director after the most severe injury in company history. John also proved that the company used untrained temporary workers and did not respond to the accident with a proper safety alert or incident report. The jury agreed and awarded almost $20,000,000 to Mr. Novick.
