About me

Stuart Scott joined Spangenberg Shibley & Liber after graduating from Ohio State Law School in 1995. He made partner in 2005.


Stuart represents individuals and families who have been catastrophically injured or killed as a result of negligence, medical malpractice, dangerous products or defective drugs.


Since becoming partner, Stu has expanded his practice into consumer rights cases. A few examples include class actions on behalf of consumers that involved:


  • unfair bank overdraft fees;

  • diapers that increased skin infection rather than decreasing it as claimed by the manufacturer; and

  • breach of warranty against a company that refused to honor its warranty contract for defectively manufactured residential hot water tanks that leaked.


Stuart became passionate about consumer rights issues after his own encounters with unscrupulous businesses and experiencing firsthand the frustration that consumer can feel. Stu believes consumer class actions protect both the consumer and the honest business by identifying and punishing the bad business practices that harm the free market system.


"Consumer Class Action lawsuits are an important judicial mechanism for leveling the playing field against businesses that mislead, deceive and otherwise view customers as prey," he says. "Without these cases, dishonest businesses would profit through deception rather than by delivering a superior service or product."
