The manufacturer of a space heater

The plaintiff claimed paralysis of her right arm while she was shopping. She was allegedly shocked by a defective space heater. She sued both the home-supply retail chain and the heating manufacturer. By deluding her doctor, the plaintiff was able to claim complete disability to her arm. We were able to capture the plaintiff on videotape performing many of the actions that she claimed she was unable to perform. The plaintiff’s attorney asked for and received permission to withdraw from the case. We requested dismissal of the case and sanctions against the plaintiff. Both requests were granted on the basis of the plaintiff’s demonstrated fraud. She was subsequently found guilty of fraud and perjury and was sentenced to four months in jail.
