Mase and DeFabio Successfully Defend Carnival Against Alleged Sexual Assault Lawsuit

The Mase Lara Eversole team is extremely pleased to report our latest result in the case of J.G. vs. Carnival Cruise Lines. On Monday, March 19th 2013, after five days of trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of Carnival Cruise Lines in a case that involved an allegation of sexual assault by a former 17-year-old passenger who claimed that she was strip searched by Carnival employees. The defense verdict was attained by Curtis Mase and Lauren DeFabio in this highly publicized case. The verdict followed a blistering cross-examination by Mr. Mase, during which the Plaintiff retracted her prior testimony and repeatedly admitted she had lied about her allegations.  These types of claims are rarely brought to trial. Through tenacious attention to detail and relentless attack of the Plaintiff’s claims and credibility, Mase Lara Eversole was able to achieve not only a defense verdict, but has also filed a motion for sanctions based on the Plaintiff’s pursuit of a frivolous claim and repeated lying.
