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!
