Civil Death Case - On Behalf of the Heirs of the Estate of John Gregory Suhor
Ms. Marshall handled this civil case arising out of the death of an elderly woman’s male maid. The investigating detective arrested the woman with murder, but the District Attorney refused the charges. Thereafter, plaintiff filed a lawsuit alleging that the elderly woman, who, by the time of trial, had herself died of natural causes, was responsible for the death of the male maid. The male maid had a very disturbed personal life. His autopsy revealed the presence of metabolites of heroin, he had threatened suicide, and the gun used was his brother’s. The defense theory was that he had committed suicide. The jury determined that he had not been killed by the defendant.
