Anthony Case Obtains Unanimous Defense Verdict in Fraud Case

Anthony Case obtained a unanimous defense verdict on a fraud case in downtown Los Angeles Superior Court. In Fishburne v., Davis, et al., Los Angeles County Superior Court Case No. BC417582, Hattie Fishburne, mother of actor Laurence Fishburne, was involved in an automobile accident with Adrin Davis and claimed personal injuries and an inability to return to work that forced her to retire.

Fishburne accepted insurance policy limits to settle her personal injury case. Fishburne later sued Davis and his insurer, Infinity Insurance Company, for allegedly fraudulently concealing assets and making intentional misrepresentations to induce her to accept in settlement far less than her claim was worth. After a five day jury trial, the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict following less than 1 hour of deliberation.
