Pistol Scare Verdict

Baker v. Dozier, Multnomah County Case No. 16CV05410

Plaintiff Baker and Defendant Dozier worked together in a shop that manufactures brake systems. Baker alleged that while they were at work, Dozier pointed a pistol and fired it at him.  Unbeknownst to Baker, the gun was loaded with a blank round. Baker claimed that Dozier had a history with firearms and, as a convicted felon, should not have been in possession of one.  Baker alleged that the incident caused him emotional distress for which he sought $1,000 in economic damages and $100,000 in non-economic damages.

Defendant Dozier claimed that the pistol was a toy cap gun and not a real firearm.
