A Mansfield man hired to help build sets for Adam Sandler's Boston-based "That's My Boy" is suing Sandler's production company, Sony, Columbia Pictures and Black and Decker because of what he says is the way he lost fingers on his right hand to a table saw.
In his suit, filed yesterday in US District Court in Boston, Richard Houpert says he was working on set creation on May 25, 2011 in Boston when a 3-hp Delta unisaw table saw sliced through several fingers on his right hand. Houpert says that Black and Decker is to blame for selling a saw that would do something like that and that Sandler's Happy Madison company, Sony and Columbia are to blame for failing to ensure the saw was equipped with an inexpensive guard to keep the saw from taking off fingers.
Houpert seeks $1 million in damages.
