$122.5 million verdict for Medical Board chair injured by car bomb

Posted By on Thu, Mar 19, 2015 at 11:47 AM

Arkansas Business reports on a $122.5 million jury verdict against Randeep Mann, the Russellville doctor now serving a federal prison sentence for the car bombing of Dr. Trent Pierce, the West Memphis doctor who was chair of the state Medical Board.

Mann had had disputes with the Medical Board. He's serving a federal prison sentence in Indiana. It's unclear what assets are available to satisfy the Crittenden County Circuit Court judgment, which included $17.5 million in actual damages (Pierce was left blind in one eye) and $105 million in punitive damages.
