SUGLIA v. LIFESTYLE CUSTOM CYCLES, LLC
SHERYL SUGLIA, Plaintiff and Appellant,
LIFESTYLE CUSTOM CYCLES, LLC et al., Defendants and Respondents.
Court of Appeals of California, Fourth District, Division Two.
Filed November 18, 2010.
NOT TO BE PUBLISHED IN OFFICIAL REPORTSOPINION
In a motorcycle accident caused by a drunk driver, plaintiff and appellant Sheryl Suglia suffered severe injuries, including amputation of her left leg. Her husband, Kerry Suglia, was killed. Plaintiff sued the manufacturer of the motorcycle helmet, NexL Sports Product (NexL), and the retailer, defendants and respondents, Mark Skolnick, Jr. (Skolnick) and Lifestyle Custom Cycles, LLC (Lifestyle). The jury found NexL was 100 percent liable for negligent misrepresentation and did not find any liability on the part of the Lifestyle defendants.
Our review of the record, such as it is, discloses significant problems with causation and no error in the jury verdict forms. Nor is the judgment against NexL a basis for imposing liability against the Lifestyle defendants.
