Marj and Samuel Scarberry recently filed a lawsuit against Target in Ohio. However, Target does not feel this is fair and, as a result, wants the case to be moved to federal court. It believes that the damages sought exceed the jurisdictional limit of $75,000 because of all the claims that the Scarberrys raise and because there is a "diversity of citizenship" between it and the plaintiffs.
In March 2010, Marj was shopping when she violently fell on an "unsafe, dangerous and unmaintained walkway floor aisle way." The prosecution claims that Target failed to exercise reasonable care to ensure that shoppers were not in danger. Consequently, their negligence caused her injuries, losses and damages. Those injuries include injuries to her back, head, extremities, "body chemistry," psyche," fascia and muscle tissue, along with other internal injuries. Furthermore, she lost wages and she claims has sustained a diminution in her future earning ability, capacity to care for herself and enjoy a normal life. Her husband, Samuel, is also claiming loss of consortium as a result of his wife's permanent and lasting injuries.
