After deliberating late into the night of a rare Saturday trial session, jurors in a Kentucky state court trial partially sided with Paula Singer in a wrongful-termination action by delivering a judgment of $47,417 against a prominent equine insurance agency and former boss Richard Vimont, but awarded her no punitive or emotional distress damages.
Jurors in a Kentucky state courthouse are basically asked to believe one of two things pertinent to a civil lawsuit being tried there: Former Kentucky resident Paula Singer was either fired from Bluegrass Bloodstock Agency in 2001 for being a poor manager; or, that the former head of the company's equine insurance division was unjustly terminated because she was on the verge of uncovering a scheme of international fraud involving her boss.
California bloodstock agent Brad Martin has been dismissed from Stonestreet Farm's Kentucky state lawsuit alleging fraud in the horse owner's $17.5-million purchase of the former Buckram Oak Farm in Lexington.
Settlement terms have been reached in the lawsuit between owners J. Paul Reddam and Kenneth Ramsey over an alleged injured horse, one day after a jury trial was scheduled to begin in a California superior court.
A dispute over the sale of an injured horse has two of the nation's top owners headed to court.
