Someone Has Made a False Claim against Me, and I Need a Criminal Defense Attorney to Fight It
David Caruso’s ex-girlfriend is seeking more than $1.2 million and a house she says the CSI: Miami star promised her.
Liza Marquez sued Caruso in court on Thursday, claiming he promised to support her even after their nearly four-year relationship ended.
In her complaint, Marquez paints Caruso as a possessive, jealous boyfriend who was a reluctant father. The suit claims Caruso, 53, was verbally abusive to Marquez on several occasions.
Marquez’s suit states she and Caruso started dating in April 2004 while she was working as a travel coordinator. The couple moved in together later that year, and Marquez claims she quit her job at Caruso’s request. The suit states Caruso told Marquez that he would “always be there” to support her financially and in other ways.
The lawsuit states Caruso ended their relationship two days after she gave birth to their second child in October 2007. It claims the couple later reached an agreement that that actor would pay Marquez $1 million, $200,000 in attorney’s fees, and give her a home in the San Fernando Valley.
Caruso broke that agreement, and Marquez is seeking the deed to the house, $1.2 million and punitive damages for fraud and intentional infliction of emotional distress claims.
Released in a statement Thursday, it was said that the lawsuit was filed with “false claims” and appears to be retaliation for Caruso seeking changes to the couple’s child custody arrangements.
In the statement, Caruso says the lawsuit is “unfortunate since these claims will divert the parties and the court’s attention away from the best interests of the children.”
