Son sues mom for his severed finger

June 4, 2009 2:09:23 PM PDT
Jurors in New Jersey have awarded a man who claimed he severed a finger when his mother tapped him on the shoulder more than $115,000. Court papers show John Garrity was installing hardwood floors in his mother's Wayne home in 2006 when she came up behind him to tell him lunch was ready.

The 40-year-old claimed he quickly turned around and his finger slipped into a miter saw's path and severed his pinky.

Nancy Garrity admitted her actions caused the injury.
