Angela Williams v. Kroger Limited Partnership I d/b/a Kroger Co.; The Kroger Co.; and Rolline Studebaker
Plaintiff says she was wrongfully and improperly caused to be placed under arrest as a direct result of actions taken by defendant Studebaker. Plaintiff says Studebaker wrongfully identified her as a person that purportedly had illegally obtained prescription drugs on March 23, 2011. Plaintiff says she was a longtime customer of Kroger Pharmacy, but that defendants did not take the time to review records or ensure that plaintiff had been properly identified as the perpetrator of the alleged crime. As a result, plaintiff was charged with fraudulently seeking prescription medications, a felony. Consequently, plaintiff says she was branded a criminal after her name and photograph were featured in a local magazine dedicated to exposing recent criminal activities and arrests. All the charges were dismissed prior to trial, subsequent to an acknowledgement by the state that the plaintiff was innocent of the crimes. Plaintiff says defendant Studebaker also gave materially untrue sworn statements before a magistrate and before a judge. Plaintiff seeks compensatory damages in principal sum of $1 million.
