Small business owner charged with battering a customer acquitted
IW, a small business owner, was arrested and charged with battery after using force to remove an unruly customer. Mr. Fiscella took the matter to trial and showed the Court that the complaining witness was incredible and her account of events should not be believed. Mr. Fiscella also argued that IW had a legal justification to use force to remove this individual who was trespassing and had battered IW. The trial judge agreed, and IW was found “not guilty” of the offense.
