A suspected broken shopping cart that went missing and a deleted surveillance video have resulted in a severe sentence from a judge who ruled that Michaels Stores Inc. deliberately falsified evidence in a property liability lawsuit.
A Houston court sanctioned the arts and crafts dealer Tuesday by preventing the company from alleging that a mother who visited the store was a responsible third party for allegedly failing to supervise her three-year-old child. The girl suffered a brain injury when she fell off a shopping cart in a Michaels store in Houston.
