Good News/Bad News

Some of you may have seen my post concerning Paul Galusha’s financial and legal battles. He was badly injured by a Pensacola city vehicle, but the city was refusing to admit culpability for his six-figure medical bills.

The good news is that the city got trounced in court. The jury found in favor the Mr. Galusha and awarded a $318,000 judgement which is in the same ballpark as his bills. Just is done…sort of.

The bad news is that Pensacola is claiming “sovereign immunity” in this case, which limits their liability to $100,000. This award sounds impressive, and goodness knows it will help, but it’s still well short of his costs.

So, let’s celebrate the win, but they’re not out of the woods yet.
