Garth Brooks Wins Lawsuit

KSCB News - January 25, 2012 8:11 am

Garth Brooks has won his lawsuit against
an Oklahoma hospital that failed to build a women’s health center
in honor of his late mother.
Jurors ruled Tuesday evening that Integris (ihn-TEG’-rihs)
Canadian Valley Regional Hospital in Yukon must pay Brooks $1
million. That includes Brooks’ $500,000 donation plus $500,000 in
punitive damages.
Brooks said he thought he’d reached a deal in 2005 with the
hospital’s president and sued after learning the hospital wanted to
use the money for other construction projects.
Jury member Beverly Lacy said she voted in favor of Brooks
because she thought the hospital went back on its word. As far as
the punitive damages, she said: "We wanted to show them not to do
that anymore to anyone else."
