Additional Cases Over The Years

Among the many interesting cases he has handled over the years, Morton Buckvar feels that the "Incredible Hulk" trial was one of the most interesting. Lou Ferrigno, the actor and bodybuilder who played the "Incredible Hulk" was induced by promoter and body builder Dan Lurie to sign a release to allow photos of him to be published in Lurie's "Muscle Training Illustrated" magazine. Mr. Ferrigno was paid only a few hundred dollars. The photos were published in a way that implied that Mr. Ferrigno endorsed various protein-supplements advertised in the magazine, when, in fact, he did not. Morton Buckvar filed a lawsuit on Mr. Ferrigno's behalf, but Dan Lurie refused to settle, and, in 1980, Morton Buckvar tried the case before a jury; the jury agreed with Mr. Ferrigno's claim that the "Incredible Hulk" was tricked into signing a release and awarded him $75,000.00 in damages (approximately $250,000 in 2013 dollars).
