Jury awards $5M to man wrongfully accused of indecent contact

A jury awarded $5 million to a man who was wrongfully arrested for indecent contact with a minor over the internet. In 2011, a man was arrested in front of his home. He was accused of performing sex acts on himself while using a Facebook account to contact a 12-year-old Sacramento girl and asking her to undress in front of a webcam. The accused man was ultimately found to have not committed the crimes, to have never been on Facebook, and to have never had a Facebook account on his computer. The plaintiff claimed Detective Heather Hendrickson was reckless in her preparation of the arrest and search warrant affidavits, causing her to mislead the magistrate that issued the warrants. Defense claimed Hendrickson was not reckless in her conduct.
J.N. v. Hendrickson
United States District Court, Central District, Los Angeles

Jury finds passenger was unbelted at time of crash

A jury found a driver and the manufacturers of a seat belt were not to blame for a passenger’s head injury and paralysis. In 2012, Terry Herbert, then 58, was a passenger in a Ford Fusion driven by Sylvia Caceres when it was involved in a rollover crash. Herbert suffered a traumatic brain injury and was rendered a paraplegic when she was ejected from the car. Herbert claimed that Caceres failed to maintain proper control of the car and that the seat belt’s buckle was defectively designed, causing it to unlatch during the crash. Caceres claimed another vehicle caused her to take evasive action, and Ford Motor Co. and the manufacturers of the Takata AB buckle claimed Herbert was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.
Herbert v. Ford Motor Co.
San Bernardino County

Driver found not to blame for pedestrian’s alleged injuries

A jury found the driver of a reversing vehicle in a parking lot was not to blame for a pedestrian’s alleged injuries. On Feb. 7, 2013, Peter Ly, then 35, was in a parking lot inspecting damage on a vehicle when his right shoulder was allegedly struck. He claimed the vehicle he was inspecting was struck by Paul Fleming’s vehicle as it was backing into a parking spot. Ly claimed his shoulder was subsequently struck, resulting in a superior labral tear. Fleming claimed that he back into the spot at idle speed and bumped the parked vehicle, but that he didn’t see Ly until he returned with the property owner. Defense counsel argued that Fleming acted reasonably and that Ly was not behind the vehicle at the time of the accident. Defense also claimed Ly was not injured.
