Arkansas court upholds USD 122.5M award in bombing case

AP  |  Little Rock 

Arkansas' highest has upheld a USD 122.5 million civil judgment against an Indian-origin former doctor who was convicted of severely injuring the state medical board's chairman in a 2009 bombing.

The Arkansas Supreme today rejected Randeep Mann's argument that a judge should have allowed him to prove he wasn't responsible for the explosion.



The justices upheld a lower court's 2013 summary judgment that Dr Pierce was entitled to damages from Mann in the bombing.

Pierce was severely injured by a grenade that was hidden in a spare tire outside his West Memphis home. Mann is serving a life sentence for conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and other charges in that attack.

A jury awarded the compensatory and punitive damages last year.
