The most important Kentucky decision on fraudulent conduct published within the last 40 years is Rickert v. United Parcel Service of America, Inc., 996 S.W.2d 464 (Ky. 1999). Mr. Shelton was co-lead counsel at the trial of this case, which resulted in a $750,000 compensative damage award to the plaintiff and a $1,000,000 punitive damage award. He was also the lead author of the appellate brief and argued the case in front of the Kentucky Supreme Court. In Rickert, the plaintiff claimed and the jury found that the defendant UPS fraudulent induced him to forgo seeking employment opportunities elsewhere by promising him a job at the start-up UPS airline. The jury found that UPS committed fraud upon Mr. Rickert when it failed to tell him that it would only be hiring a limited number of airline pilots and that he may not necessarily be one of the individuals they hire.
