DeMattia v. DeMattia
Middlesex County, New Jersey
This case went to trial as a marital tort lawsuit – a civil action that allows individuals involved in a divorce to sue their spouses for physical or emotional injury or damage to property. Mr. Tournour represented the plaintiff, a woman who had been repeatedly abused by her husband and was diagnosed as having a battered woman’s syndrome. Mr. Tournour obtained a $400,000 award on behalf of the woman, helping her to establish independence from her husband and move forward with her life.
The case represented another historic lawsuit for Middlesex County in that it was the first jury trial conducted for marital torts. In obtaining such a large victory for his client, Mr. Tournour helped establish a strong precedent that paved the way for other battered spouses to seek compensation for their injuries.
