$4 awarded by court, but hey! It’s the principle of the thing.
The verdict is in: An undercover DeKalb County [Georgia] police officer violated the Fourth Amendment rights of two vegans by illegally seizing them after they protested a HoneyBaked Ham store on Buford Highway.
A federal jury in Atlanta also found that then-DeKalb homeland security Officer David Gorman acted with “malice or reckless indifference” to the protected rights of vegans Caitlin Childs and Christopher Freeman.
But in a verdict handed down late Thursday, the jury found the vegans’ harm was inconsequential. The jurors’ award: $1 in compensatory damages and $1 in punitive damages for Childs and the same for Freeman.
