Steven G. Wigrizer Reaches $45 million Verdict For Abuse Victim

November 14th, 2014 by Wapner Newman

Steven G. Wigrizer, a partner at Wapner, Newman, Wigrizer, Brecher & Miller, P.C., is representing Tamara Breeden, the victim of a tragic and unusual case of abuse. The jury awarded $45 million in compensation and punitive damages to Breeden against Linda Ann Weston and two other defendants.

Breeden, along with three other mentally disabled victims, was rescued from a Tacony sub-basement after nearly a decade of unthinkable abuse. Weston had kept the victims as captives “in a living hell” in order to steal their Social Security disability benefits. Wigrizer stated that Breeden “was the victim of a cruel and twisted and sick woman.” Breeden sustained physical, mental, and sexual abuse that resulted in pregnancies.
