The Plaintiff ,a mason and independent contractor, learned that the Defendant created a
MySpace Web page that included negative remarks about him and his business and retained
Ginsberg & Wolf to file suit. He also claimed that the Defendant had verbally spread similarly
negative remarks in the community in which he lived and worked. He contended that the
comments harmed his reputation and business and alleged that the Defendant's actions
constituted libel and slander. Ginsberg & Wolf attorney Dov Medinets presented proof and
argued that his business referrals depended on referrals from within the community and that
the Defendant's publication destroyed his business. The Judicial Hearing Officer Miriam
Sunshine determined that the Plaintiff was entitled to recover of his lost earnings of
$237,000.00. The case was published by ALM's New York Jury Verdict Report.

$525,000 JURY VERDICT AGAINST AMERICAN AIRLINES FOR DENYING
PASSAGE TO PLAINTIFF ATTEMPTING TO TRAVEL TO NEW YORK CITY FOR
EMERGENCY SURGICAL REMOVAL OF A HEMATOMA FROM SPINAL
COLUMN; COURT RULES THAT WARSAW CONVENTION DOES NOT LIMIT
PLAINTIFF'S RECOVERY. The Plaintiff, while conducting a sociological study in Haiti, was
suddenly stricken with pain and admitted to a hospital in Port-au-Prince suffering from a
progressive paralysis of her lower extremities. Since the doctors at Port-au-Prince were baffled
as to the nature of her illness, arrangements were made for her flight on American Airlines to
New York City on and her immediate hospitalization at the Columbia Presbyterian Medical
Center. While boarding an American Airlines flight, Plaintiff was denied passage. As a
consequence, her medical treatment was delayed for 48 hours. The case was tried by Robert M.
Ginsberg to verdict. The jury awarded the Plaintiff $525,000 for the pain and suffering and
consequential damages caused to the Plaintiff by the delayed treatment. American Airlines
attempted to set aside the verdict, arguing that the Warsaw Convention limited Plaintiff's
recovery to $75,000. The Supreme Court disagreed, but reduced Plaintiff's recovery to $500,000,
due Plaintiff's ad damnun clause. Posted August 4, 2011.
