Judge Slams ‘Serial Perjurer’


— November 3, 2003

In one of the costliest punishments ever imposed in Connecticut for discovery abuse, an international merchandise agent for World Wrestling Federation Entertainment Inc. has been forced to forfeit his multimillion-dollar suit for unpaid fees, due to conduct that a judge said “defiled the judicial system.”

Stamford Superior Court Judge Chase T. Rogers branded Stanley Shenker a “serial perjurer,” and dismissed with prejudice his action against Stamford-based WWE.

Rogers ruled on Oct. 16 that Shenker lost his right to litigate when he “deliberately and repeatedly committed perjury and a fraud upon this court.” In addition, the WWE wins its counterclaims, with dollar amounts to be set after a hearing on damages, the judge declared.
