Thomas Christopher Hunter v. Tina Ackley; Michael C. Winston; Sentara Healthcare; and Sentara Hospitals
Plaintiff says at the time of the incident he was a successful business proprietor and sole member of SIGGE LLC, which served as the intermediary between manufacturers of surgical equipment and medical providers in need of such equipment. Plaintiff says once he produced the equipment from a manufacturer or from SIGGE-owned inventory via consignment, the equipment would be provided by SIGGE on a metallic, sealed and sterilized tray, and stored in a facility’s sterile storage area. When a procedure did not proceed as planned, plaintiff says defendant representatives asked him to remove SIGGE-owned trays from the sterile storage room at Sentara Careplex in Hampton so as to unencumber space, and he removed a SIGGE-owned and clearly marked cervical removal tray as requested by Ackley on Oct. 20, 2019, and texted her that he had done so. Plaintiff says in November he was falsely accused of stealing equipment, and on Oct. 31, 2020, was arrested for grand larceny. Plaintiff says at a preliminary hearing on Jan. 8, 2021, he supplied irrefutable evidence demonstrating the tray at issue was the property of SIGGE, not defendant, and the case was nolle prose. Plaintiff says his reputation was destroyed and he was made a pariah in his trade, causing loss of earnings and earnings potential, and that he was subjected to baseless criminal prosecution. Plaintiff seeks compensatory damages of $20 million, and punitive, $5 million.
