California Intentional Torts Lawyer

San Diego Liability Claim Defense Attorneys

Intentional torts - including assault and battery claims involving little or no injuries, to claims involving major injuries and death - represent another busy area of CLM's defense practice. We have eliminated claims against our clients for punitive or exemplary damages and have successfully resolved many difficult claims. Our jury trial experience and excellent results have made CLM a law firm of choice when such claims are asserted.

Representative Cases Handled:

Price v. Street
(San Diego Superior Court)

Attorneys of the firm represented the defendant (an attorney) in an assault and battery case involving resultant personal injuries. In a dispute involving the handling of a lawsuit, the plaintiff (also an attorney) transferred the case to the defendant to handle in her place at the request of the client in that matter. Fearing that certain documents left in the file would expose the plaintiff to a malpractice action, the plaintiff appeared without notice at the defendant's law office and demanded the case file. The defendant, based upon legal reasons and the instructions of the client, refused. The plaintiff then initiated a physical altercation with the defendant; was injured; and thereafter sued the defendant for battery and negligence. Following a four-day trial, the jury returned a defense verdict in favor of our client.

Frost v. Radke
(San Diego Superior Court)

Our attorneys represented a university fraternity and one of its officers (a student) was accused of striking the plaintiff (also a university student) during an altercation at an on-campus fraternity party. Alcohol was involved and the fraternity was accused of negligence in supervising the event. The student officer was accused of assault and battery. The plaintiff suffered permanent injuries to one eye, as well as other minor injuries, and sued the fraternity for negligence. Following a six-day trial, the jury awarded a nominal sum to cover medical expenses and dismissed the claim for punitive damages against the student fraternity officer. Further, the fraternity received a defense verdict. By confidential settlement, the case was later settled in lieu of appeal by plaintiff.
