FOLLOW-UP: Rancher has to pay $78k in damages 20 Feb 2009 @ 17:12Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : I'm callin' SHENANIGINS, ILLEGAL aliens , comments closed
If you jump back here, Darth has the original post on this pissue. Now it seems that while the ILLEGALS didn’t get the $32 MILLION (holding pinky to cheek) they wanted, as for right now the judge has awarded them just over $78k for:
The rancher was held liable for limited damages involving assault and emotional distress. Two illegal aliens were given $1,000 plus $10,000 in punitive damages each. Two more received $7,500, plus $20,000 in punitive damages each.
Also, two of the plaintiffs received $1,400, and two were awarded $1 each for assault. The term “assault” is legally applied when a person has simply put someone in fear of a harmful contact.
On the good side:
Barnett’s attorney, David Hardy, said the judge completely dismissed the cases against Barbara and Donald after the illegals claimed conspiracy.
All together, the illegals received only $77,804 of the $32 million they requested – and Hardy believes that award will be thrown out in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
“It was 95 percent victory for us,” he said. “What they really wanted were the first two civil rights claims because if they got those, they got attorney’s fees. With nine attorneys working on the case, I’m sure their fees were $500,000 to $1 million.”
Remember denizens, the wacko Ninth Circuit Court is in San Franpelousy’s neck of the woods so we can’t be totally sure an appeal would be won by Hardy and the rancher. Clearly though, this appeal should be a open-and-shut deal where the damages are rescinded and the ILLEGALS are forced to not only pay THEIR lawyers fees, but Hardy’s fees and all the court costs.
