Paris Hilton's Brother Might Owe $4.6 Million In Damages
It runs in the family - being a train wreck that is. If you remember, a couple of years ago Paris Hilton's younger brother, Barron Hilton, had himself a nice little DUI. Well fast forward to 2011 and a jury in Santa Monica has ordered Barron's auto insurance company to pay $4.6 million to the man he hit while driving intoxicated.
The jury deliberated for two days, and the bad news doesn't stop there. The jury comes back Thursday to determine if any punitive damages should be paid to Telez. Telez said he'd broken his back, and has been unable to find work since the incident.
If the jury awards punitive damage, Barron Hilton will be responsible for paying that because under California law, insurance companies are only liable for compensatory damages.
