Rosenfeld v. Bort

Practice Area: Dog Bite
Outcome: $738,000

On November 21, 1995, plaintiff Marcy Korshak , a 41 year old freelance screen writer , was jogging on a sidewalk in Westwood, CA, when she was attacked by a 100 lb. white German Shepherd dog owned by defendant Peter Bort. The dog was not on a leash, as required by California law. The dog ran towards Ms. Korshak, then lunged at Ms. Korshak , hitting her in the chest with his front paws, forcefully knocking her backwards to the ground, and then bit Ms. Korshak. The bite was superficial , however during the fall onto her back and neck, Ms. Korshak seriously injured her neck.

After the attack, Ms. Korshak's neck pain became progressively worse. She eventually had 3 surgeries in which damaged cervical disks were removed, the bones fused together, and titanium plates were attached to her cervical spine to hold her neck in place.

Mr. Bort contended that it was not his dog that attacked Ms. Korshak. Mr. Bort claimed that it must have been another large white German Shepard that attacked Ms. Korshak, and then disappeared. Mr. Bort also contended that Ms. Korshak injured her neck prior to the dog attack, and therefore he was not responsible for her medical treatment and pain and suffering.

During the trial, plaintiff presented evidence that Mr. Bort's dog had exhibited aggressive behavior many times before, and that Mr. Bort, although requested many times by his frightened neighbors, refused to walk his dog on a leash.

After a 3 week jury trial, the jury found in favor of Ms. Korshak, awarding her $738,000. Because Ms. Korshak made a settlement offer for less than the amount she was awarded, she was entitled to and also collected an additional $100,000 in prejudgment interest.
