Tillery v. Dollar Tree Verdict news coverage

dollar_tree_logoThe Oregonian did a story on the verdict we obtained on June 23rd, 2010 in Tillery v. Dollar Tree Store, Inc. Click here for the story. Unfortunately, the print version of the Oregonian piece used the cheeky headline “Purse Peek.” Dollar Tree lawyers called the incident a “Purse Peek” and argued there was no force used.  The jury rejected this defense and found the plaintiff was falsely arrested and battered. We must point out that we appreciate the Oregonians coverage of courthouse news and the fact that they have courthouse beat reporter Aimee Green.
