A judge awarded a default judgment against Kim Richards from his chambers today. Richards refused to acknowledge the case or hire counsel to defend her. Razario was asking for $1,050, 000 in total damages.
According to the plaintiff’s filing, in March of 2014, while a guest in Richards home, “Kay Rozario was in Defendant Richards’ bedroom talking to Defendant Richards who was lying on the bed next to the dog. All of the sudden and without provocation, the dog jumped up from the bed, moved across it and attacked and bit Kay Rozario, causing severe injuries to her left hand, arm and back. As the dog was attacking and biting Kay Rozario, she fell backwards onto the floor. Bleeding profusely from her wounds, as she was being attacked and bitten, Kay Rozario screamed.” To read all the details of the case click here.
The judgment was for $8,083. 53. in general damages. However, this judgment is not final.
In one final post I have been working on today, I’ve been sifting through legal documents on this case and talking to experts and attorneys. Razario has ten days to explain why this award is not enough. She can now ask for attorneys fees, and ask the judge to reconsider based on Kim’s assets and financial standing.
I feel certain legal fees will be awarded on her behalf. And it is still possible for Razario to receive a larger settlement.
After 15 hours of researching various posts today, I am not in the mood to wake up in the morning to have commenters claiming to know more than I know about the subject. You will be blocked.
