Man Wins Against Girlfriend Who Ruined His Career!
Eric Abramovitz has played clarinet ever since he was a kid - and he's pretty talented. So he applied to his dream school theCoburn Conservatory of Music - where legendary professorYehuda Gilad accepts two students a year. Along with being his student, participants get a full scholarship, which runs about 50-thousand dollars a year. And Eric got in!
The problem? Eric's then-girlfriend Jennifer Lee did it all to keep him with her at McGill University.
She sent Colburn an email pretending to be Abramovitz, turning down the scholarship. Then she sent a fake email to Abramovitz, pretending to be Yehuda Gilad saying that he had not been offered the scholarship. Writing as Gilad, she offered a scholarship of $5,000 a year to study at the University of Southern California. Tuition at USC is $51,000, which Lee knew Abramovitz couldn’t afford.
Fast-forward two years later, and happened to meet Yehuda - and they discovered the deception. So they collected the proof of her shenanigans - and he went to court. And now? a jury has awarded him the $300-thousand he asked for PLUS threw in another 50k! While Eric is now with the Santa Barbara Orchestra, it's easy to see why the decision is music to his ears.
Superior Court Judge David Corbett said “I cannot speculate as to how high and how quickly Mr. Abramovitz’s career might have soared, but for the interference by Ms. Lee. But the law does recognize that the loss of a chance is a very real and compensable loss.”
