by | Oct 24, 2023 | 10.0 Rated AVVO, false arrest, false imprisonment, Shoplifting civil settlement |

The client called after being falsely accused of shoplifting a watermelon. We explained that our client was detained for over 20 minutes without a legitimate basis for the security guard to do so, and that the store now faced significant liability for their negligence and  false imprisonment and invasion of privacy of our client.

After negotiations, the case settled for $100,000, without a lawsuit being filed.

Don’t ever accept a false accusation and detention.
