Re: Jody David Armour

Jody Armour was quoted about the large sum a court awarded in damages to a family of a man fatally shot by a San Bernardino County deputy. "The jury was convinced that there was clear and convincing evidence that the officer was not merely negligent and unreasonable in killing the victim, but that his behavior was egregious, that it was characterized by malice," Armour said. "I remember $5-, $7-, $8-million awards, but nothing in this area."
