Sex Tape Scandal Lawsuit Against 50 Cent

Miami Woman Awarded $7 Million in Sex-Tape Lawsuit against Rapper 50 Cent - New York, NY - (24 July 2015). Today a New York City jury slammed rapper 50 Cent with a $7 million verdict in compensatory and punitive damages in favor of L. L., a South Florida mother of two.

"We are thankful to our jury who sacrificed so much. But most of all I want to express my deep admiration for my client and her amazing courage in standing tall and fighting for justice. It's not easy to take on powerful people who abuse less powerful people, but she did it. I am proud to have been part of a great team that made this happen," said Philip Freidin, lead counsel for Ms. L.

The rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, was found by the jury to have invaded Ms. L.'s privacy and intentionally inflicted emotional distress on her in order to further his position in a made-up conflict with another rapper, Rick Ross, the father of Ms. L.'s child. The jury found that Mr. Jackson obtained, edited, and published on his website an intimate video that Ms. L. had made with her boyfriend at the time. In order to hurt Ross, Jackson superimposed himself on the original video and hurled horrendously degrading insults at Ms. L., while at the same time shrieking with laughter. The edited videotape, which was replete with Mr. Jackson's brand, went viral and had over 3 million views.

"I am extremely proud and thankful that my team helped me find the courage to stand up to a man who took advantage of and humiliated me in front of the entire world," said L.

Settlement Against a Hospital and Doctors

Freidin Brown obtained a 5.5 million settlement against a hospital and doctors in New Port Richey, Florida for the negligence of its doctors and nurses. In that case, the plaintiff, who was pregnant at the time, presented to the emergency room with a high fever and swollen face. Unfortunately, the doctors and nurses discharged the plaintiff without first determining the cause of her facial swelling and whether she had an infection. As a result, our client suffered permanent and incapacitating brain damages. In order to prove our case, we hired top medical experts in their fields to show that the doctor and nurses breached the standard of care and should never have discharged the plaintiff without first determining the cause of her symptoms. In this case, we obtained the settlement not only on behalf of the plaintiff, but also on behalf of her children, who lost the love and services of their mother as a result of the negligence.

Verdict for Family of Drunk Driving Accident Victim

A jury awarded $5.25 million to the children of Miami-Dade Circuit Judge S. L., who was killed by a drunk driver in 2001.

On Dec. 8, 2001, L., 47, was driving his red Corvette on Krome Avenue near Homestead when a Chevy pickup truck driven by Jose Hernandez ran a stop sign at approximately 80 mph and smashed into his car, instantly killing the Judge and his passenger.

Mr. H., the defendant, had a blood alcohol rate of .232 percent, nearly three times the legal limit of .08 percent. He had just left the Coyote Bar with his passenger, R. S., who had also been drinking heavily.

Judge L., a 15-year veteran of the bench, left behind a widow, T. H., and two minor children. T. H. sued in 2002, charging H. with negligence.

H. was convicted of vehicular manslaughter and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

The two-day civil trial started Monday, March 6. After 30 minutes of deliberations on the afternoon of March 7, the jury awarded Judge L.'s family $5.25 million.

Negligent Security

After eight years of litigation, on September 23, 2011, a Miami-Dade County jury returned a $4.78 million verdict in a negligent security case. Mrs. G. was murdered in her bedroom by an intruder who broke into the house in the early morning hours of January 6, 2003. At trial, the Plaintiff alleged that the Defendant, 50 State Security Service, Inc., was negligent in the execution of its post orders, which required that the security guards maintain a continuous mobile patrol of the neighborhood. The Plaintiff further alleged that had the security company properly performed its duties, the intruder would have been deterred and would never have attempted to enter the home.

The Defendant, 50 State Security Service, Inc., denied any wrong-doing and further called a retired FBI agent, who specialized in profiling criminals, to testify that the individual who murdered Mrs. G. was not capable of being deterred. 50 State Security Service, Inc. further alleged that if anyone was at fault it was ADT, the alarm company that protected the house, and Mrs. G. who left her bathroom window open.

Ultimately, the jury concluded that both 50 State Security Service, Inc. and ADT shared the responsibility and awarded the three surviving daughters (ages 24, 19 and 16 at the time of their mother’s death) significant damages for their pain and suffering. The jury further found that Mrs. G. was not at fault.

Severe Arm Injury

$3.374 million verdict for a severe degloving injury to a 17 year old boy's left (non-dominant) arm.

On April 5, 2005 a Broward County jury found J.T. B. responsible for the injuries sustained by A. L.V. in a car accident. As result, the jury, made up of four women and two men awarded V. $3,374,000.00.

October 11, 2003, B., who was 17 at the time of the accident, was traveling Eastbound on Royal Palm Blvd. Just past NW 107th Avenue, BYRON made a U-turn on to the Westbound traffic and collided with the vehicle being driven by V., who was also 17 at the time of the accident. Following the impact, V.'s vehicle collided with a median causing his vehicle to overturn at least once.

As a result of the accident, V. suffered a severe degloving injury to his left (non-dominant) arm severing an artery and veins. A degloving injury is an injury in which the entire skin is torn from either a leg or arm by blunt trauma to the extremity involved. At the time of the accident, doctors feared that V. would lose his arm. Over the course of seven months, Mr. V. underwent 14 surgical procedures. However, with the assistance of concerned citizens who made homemade tourniquets to keep V. from bleeding to death at the scene, and some very talented and dedicated doctors, V. was able to keep his arm and has regained some function in the arm and hand.

(A. L.V. V. J. T. B., Broward Circuit Court, 17th Judicial Circuit, Case No. 04-4184-03).

We also showed that the doctors failed to appreciate the patient’s neurological status, and should have ordered an MRI on a “STAT” or emergency basis.

Further, we conducted an investigation of the apartment building and found witnesses to testify that this was not the first time pool furniture fell off the pool deck, and that the building was on notice of this unsafe condition. One witness we located reported that he regularly saw building personnel picking up lounge cushions from the street. We also hired an expert meteorologist to testify as to the wind conditions on the pool deck, and that the unsafe condition was foreseeable because of the high wind speeds on the pool deck.

Assisted Living Facility

O.W. v. Assisted Living Facility - our client, a 74-year-old woman, was a resident at a Miami-Dade County Assisted Living Facility (ALF). At the time of her admission to the ALF, our client was known to be a paranoid schizophrenic requiring anti-psychotic medication to reduce the effects of the schizophrenia, particularly delusions and hallucinations. Unfortunately, the facility failed to provide our client with appropriate medications and psychiatric care causing her to suffer from psychotic episodes which rendered her helpless to control hallucinations, delusions, fits of rage and aggression.

On the last day of her admission, our client suffered from an uncontrolled psychotic rage, which caused the facility to call the police. In attempting to control our client, the police injured her eye, arrested her and had her put in jail.

The attorneys at Freidin Brown, P.A. persuaded the trial court that the Assisted Living Facilities actions warranted a claim for punitive damages. Soon after the court granted our client leave to amend her complaint to add a claim for punitive damages, the defendant agreed to settle the case and compensate our client for her injuries and her pain and suffering.
