Though the shooting incident at a Las Vegas strip club happened back in 2007, NFL defensive back Adam “Pacman” Jones is still dealing with the repercussions.  Jones was apart of the Tennessee Titans at the time but is now with Cincinnati Bengals and has stayed out of trouble for the most part.  Jones however remains liable for $12.4 million in damages to victims of the shooting incident after the Nevada Supreme Court upheld a prior ruling.

Jones wasn’t the gunman. But the unanimous state high court ruling, issued Thursday, upheld a jury’s finding that he instigated the violence (he threw money at the strippers which started the fight) and was responsible to pay some $11.2 million to Tommy Urbanski and his ex-wife, Kathy, and $1.3 million to Urbanski’s former co-worker Aaron Cudworth.

The civil trial jury in June 2012 found Jones liable for assault, battery, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress against Cudworth.

But the same jury found Jones wasn’t liable for assault, battery and imprisonment in Urbanski’s case. The damages awarded to the Urbanskis were for medical costs, loss of earnings and infliction of distress.

It is tragic that a doorman was paralyzed in the incident but it seems crazy to me that the person who didn’t pull the trigger is held solely and completely liable in terms of monetary damages.
