A young man who was paralyzed three years ago in an automobile accident should receive $880,000 from the city of Oxnard and $850,000 from the makers of the Subaru Brat, a Ventura County jury decided Wednesday. The award disappointed lawyers representing Oxnard resident Israel Echevarria, who had asked the jury for more than $17 million. Attorney Edward Steinbrecher vowed to appeal. "Juries do absurd things. This is absurd," Steinbrecher said immediately after the verdict was read.
