Homeless surfboard repairman loses personal injury case against Junior Seau estate
The homeless surfboard repairman from San Diego who decided to represent himself in a personal injury case against the estate of recently-deceased NFL Hall of Famer Junior Seau has had his $100,000 lawsuit denied by a 12 person jury.
Murray “Moose” Lea filed suit against Seau last year in relation to an incident where he claimed Seau nearly hit him with his Cadillac Escalade while accidentally driving it off of a cliff in late 2010.
Lea claims to have sustained various muscle and bone injuries as he evaded being killed by Seau’s SUV. However he showed up late for the first day of court and, during his hearing, failed to provide any evidence of hospital payments, did not furnish a single witness, and could not show any proof of lost income, which he put at $80-$100 per hour. While it was not clear to him why all of this hurt his case, any injury lawyer would have known better.
