Millison v. DuPont. $1.4 Million Dollar Verdict in Punitive Damages for Concealment of Medical Records. David Jacoby defined New Jersey law when he successfully argued before the New Jersey Supreme Court that employees can directly sue their employer in Civil Court for money damages whenever the employer fraudulently conceals medical information. This rule does not apply to Workers' Compensation Court. The jury awarded $1.4 million in punitive damages against DuPont for fraudulently concealing Millison's medical records.
