| | Toriumi v Ritz Carlton
The below are excerpted from documents from a lawsuit filed by Dr. Dean M. Toriumi in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan Southern Division in January 2006 .
“Plaintiff (Toriumi) has submitted a report from an orthopedic surgeon indicating that plaintiff has suffered permanent injuries as the result of an electrical shock received by him at the subject hotel. Plaintiff is a plastic surgeon and claims that the electrical shock has interfered with his ability to perform surgery.”
Further, these “diverse injuries to and about his body, both internally and externally” are later described as being of “a permanent and lasting nature” and are sufficiently severe such that “as a result of which the plaintiff has been and will continue to be further prevented and limited in attending to his usual duties and affairs, and has lost and will in the future lose great gain.”
Over the course of the litigation, Toriumi tried to submit the medical records of his patients as part of his case.
