A New Jersey Superior Court has ruled Mohalee Cowherd was not acting in his capacity as a Verizon employee when he got out of his company car, followed Ronal Cartlidge into a restaurant and punched him in the face.

The two had argued, and Cowherd decided to take matters inside. Cartlidge sued Cowherd and Verizon, claiming Verizon was liable for the actions of its employee.

Verizon successfully defended itself by claiming the altercation was unforeseeable and that assaulting strangers was not in Cowherd’s job description.
