$70.5M verdict in wrongful death case

ELYRIA — A $70.5 million wrongful death and negligence judgment has been rendered against a Lorain woman currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for killing a toddler in 2015.

A one-day trial on claims of negligence and wrongful death ended with an eight-person jury unanimously finding in favor of the estate of 17-month-old Nadia Gibbons and for her mother, also named Nadia Gibbons, against Summer Shalodi.

The jury awarded the dead child’s estate $5 million on a claim of negligence, $30,250,000 for wrongful death and an additional $35,250,000 in punitive damages, according to Lorain County Common Pleas Judge Christopher Cook’s office.

Shalodi’s attorneys withdrew from defending her prior to the trial. She also appeared in court Monday but did not participate in a brief trial that took place Tuesday, court officials and attorneys said.
