Attorney reviews Vives-Hull suit and countersuit

-A A +A
By The Staff

Although I have tried many cases to juries, I have never encountered more intelligent, educated or thoughtful jurors than those who decided Thomas Edward Vives vs. Linda Hull. The citizens of Los Alamos County have every reason to be proud of them.

During the trial, the attorney for Hull repeatedly stated that unless the jury awarded Hull at least $135,000, Ted Vives would win. But the jury did not find that Vives harmed Hull in any way whatsoever. With respect to Hull’s claim for Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, the jury did not find that Vives committed any of the many acts of vandalism and harassment of which Hull accused him, accusations that Hull has, like a pillow full of feathers tossed in the wind, spread far and wide in this community. Nor did the jury agree with Hull that Vives brought this lawsuit for any other reason than to prove the falsity of those same accusations.

Finally, the jury acquitted Vives of any attempt to assault Hull in the Coffee Booth. The jury rejected each of Hull’s claims.
