Wolf alleged that during 20 months he could not stop an erection following a 4-hour ride on a 1993 BMW K100Rs motorcycle equipped with an after-market Corbin seat. He was looking for financial compensation for not being able to get “normal” sexual relations and suffering substantial emotional and mental anguish.
Jokes aside, the Superior Court of San Francisco just dismissed the 2 lawsuits against BMW and Corbin-Pacific Inc. Judge James J. McBride granted the defendants’ motion for non-suit, essentially ruling the plaintiff did not present enough evidence to support his case. The court tossed out portions of video testimony of Dr. Jonathan Rutchik, a neurologist introduced by the plaintiff, who argued it is possible vibrations from a motorcycle could cause priapism, citing studies conducted in Japan. The court deemed those studies irrelevant to the case and ruled Dr. Rutchik’s opinions were speculative “not supported by a specific causation for plaintiff’s injury.”
