Most Creative Script: Jerry Colatis

Personal injury lawsuits sometimes tell stories that are doozies, but a “death by flying shrimp” tale gets the nod for originality. The family of Jerry Colaitis, 47, of Mineola, NY sought $10 million from the Benihana Japanese steakhouse chain, claiming Colaitis’s died from a neck injury suffered while ducking a piece of tossed shrimp at the restaurant. Colaitis reportedly experienced numbness in his arm, followed by fever and death in the months after his meal. The jury “tossed” the family’s claim.
