First, there were only two plaintiffs in this case and they were suing for $150 million. Ordinarily in a case like this you have to itemize your financial loss to bear out what you’re suing for. I have no idea how they arrived at that and I also don’t know what formula the jury used to decide on what they awarded.

In terms of what I think - all Jones is really guilty of at the end of the day is hurting peoples feelings. I wouldn’t value the feelings of the two plaintiffs involved in this case - or anyone for that matter - in the tens of millions let alone the $150 million they wanted.

Well opinions vary

The judge and jury had a different one.

Personally I would pick The Rack or Drawn and Quartered

For all these lying right wing pundits

His victims suffered harassment and death threats by Jones's followers and some of them had to move several times.

Says you. But the civil code says otherwise. I will let you do all the weeping for Jones. Good luck.
Well, the jury decided they’re not entitled to the $150 million in compensatory damages they were seeking so you can do the weeping. I just want to know what the formula was.

Unfortunately, Governor GW Bush signed a cap on punitive judgements in Texas. Nobody should be fooled the Texas protects pieces of shit like Jones... He will not be as lucky in Connecticut court..

The formula for deciding punitive damages? If only there were some huge, easily accessible repository of information that you could access to find out.... dang it... totally unfair...

Hurt feelings dont lead to suicide and moving 10 times.

We don't know what they settled for.
The estimated net worth of Nick Sandmann is in excess of $1 million dollars.

Considering he was asking for totals near half a billion and he also got considerable sums from conservatives on media and in person I'd say he settled for somewhere between jack and shit.

It's OK, the next case isn't in TX and they can take that verdict into account when deciding penalties.

Use complete sentences, please. Which outlets lied, what lies did they report and how long did they report them?

For instance - From 1/20 to the present, XYZ repeatedly falsely reported that John Doe stole money from his grandmother.

Please produce this huge easily accessible repository that identifies what formula this jury elected to use to calculate the compensatory damages and the punitive damages.

Sandmann just got his ass kicked... Where are Kyles lawsuits?
No he didn't. A highly partisan Carter appointed judge dismissed it based on an opinion that could of easily been applied to the Jones case and dismissed on the same grounds.

These are concocted fantasies, likely fed to you by a paid blogger. I wonder who?
