Elon Musk’s ex-wife has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit. According to Radar, the Tesla founder’s former wife Justine is being sued by a DoorDash delivery worker who claims her dog severely attacked her while delivering meals to the 49-year-old Canadian author’s home.
Hayedeh Samadi, the claimed victim, filed the action on Friday in the Superior Court of Los Angeles County for strict liability, general carelessness, violence, and a number of other allegations, which might lead to Justine paying out a sizable payment.
Not only is Samadi suing for strict responsibility, battery, and a plethora of other issues, but the alleged victim also wants Justine’s dog killed for the alleged attack, according to a recent Blast report.
Justine’s dog “caused serious and permanent bodily injuries”
The fact that Samadi claims Justine’s dog “caused serious and permanent bodily injuries” and has left her with “extreme anxiety” as a result of the attack makes the tale even more startling.
Samadi allegedly suffered “non-economic damages, including but not limited to pain, suffering, anxiety, scarring, loss of enjoyment of life, inconvenience, frustration, and handicap” as a result of the incident, according to newly filed court records.
Despite the traumatic experience Samadi claims to have had as a result of the alleged dog attack in April 2020, she admits in court documents that she did not file a complaint with animal control for the “unprovoked animal attack,” implying that there may not be sufficient proof documenting when and where the incident occurred.
““Despite that knowledge, [the] Defendant did not take reasonable steps to prevent the harm to [Samadi],” the documents say regarding Justine’s “dog’s propensity of danger and viciousness.”
In addition to punitive damages, Samadi is demanding that the dog“be seized, confined, and/or euthanized” as a result of the claimed attack, though the court has yet to rule on whether or not the request will be granted.
