A Judgement is Rendered Finally

The first step in Peter’s long journey is complete: the court has entered judgment against Connor Cochran for committing elder abuse (constructive fraud), fraud, defamation (slander), and breach of fiduciary duty. All the details are in this detailed Statement of Decision from the judge. (No punitive damages were assessed, but that’s because of the bankruptcy; the law says that you can’t get an award of punitive damages if the defendant can’t pay.) Peter still doesn’t have his rights back, but that’s the next step. Stay tuned!

About Cat Eldridge


I’m the publisher of this website which is all about Peter Beagle. Email me here if you’ve got any questions.

I’ve met him but once over dinner — he’s quite witty and charming in person.

At Green Man Review, my other site, he’s the only writer that we like so much that two editions were done on him and his works.

My favorite works by him are Tamsin, Giant Bones, Summerlong which I first read in draft a long time ago and In Calabria.
