They couldn't have been more different one a teenager from affluent suburbia, the other a little kid from the poor part of the city. However, both boys would come to share a common experience as random, unsuspecting victims of terrible tragedies not merely bad luck but the result of wrongful, egregious conduct. Partners in the same Philadelphia law firm would represent the families in their quest for justice against well-known corporate entities: the Daisy Manufacturing Company, a maker of powerful airguns marketed to children; and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), which failed to properly upgrade and maintain its escalators.
