Man Sues Another Guy For Affair with His Wife, Wins $8.8 million
Extramarital affairs are a recipe for trouble, especially in North Carolina. The tar heel state allows people to sue for alienation of affection when a spouse is unfaithful. The Durhan News & Observer reports, Keith king did exactly that. He sued Francisco Huizar III for having an affair with his wife, thus ruining his life, and causing PTSD. A Durham County court ruled in King's favor, ordering Huizar to pay $2.2 million in compensatory damages, and $6.6 million in punitive damages. The civil complaint charged Huizar with criminal conversation, alienation of affection, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress and assault and battery. I don't recommend fooling around with married women in the first place. If you're a guy & just can't resist the temptation, don't do it in North Carolina!
