- Irwin Elliot Tauber, a top Florida real estate developer and the CEO of Taubco, is being sued over an incident involving him driving his fishing boat over a woman in April, according to the woman’s complaint.
- Theresa Murray was swimming in a “manatee zone” when Tauber is accused of running his 41-foot-boat over her, causing multiple gashes on her left leg that “cut all the way to the bone,” the lawsuit says.
- “It seems to be a rash of billionaires who buy million-dollar boats with four outboard engines in this case totaling 1800 horsepower and taking them out and being extremely careless,” the swimmer’s lawyer told Business Insider.
- “The defendants will respond to and defend against the claims in the legal proceeding,” Tauber’s attorney says. “We are unable to comment further on the pending litigation.”
