    Lets keep this thread updated with any news:

    WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)Ė Senator Rand Paulís civil trial against his neighbor, Rene Boucher, is set to begin Monday, according to the Kentucky Trial Court Review.

    Boucher allegedly attacked Paul in November 2017 over a lawn maintenance dispute.

    Details from the incident reveal that Paul suffered a hernia in addition to six broken ribs. His doctors compare the incident to a 25 mph car crash.

    Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress and was sentenced to 30 days in prison.

    The senator has quantified his damages at $500,000 or pain and suffering and an additional $1 million in punitive damages.

    ''Assaulting a member of Congress''
    This is another 'protected class' ?

    Why is the neighbor not being prosecuted by the DA, or is he?

    Good I hope he gets every penny he is asking for and gets a good security detail for he and his family. I am sorry this was no isolated lawn dispute, that guy was put up to that and was paid handsomely to hurt Rand.

    If someone gets in your face, or even tries to kill you the simple fact that you exist and are a non leftist makes you part of a 'dispute'.

    He was supposed to KILL Rand, as a doctor he knew enough medicine to know that the injuries he chose to inflict had a high probability of causing death.

    I believe that guy was a anesthesiologist. I agree with you. He was allegedly retired and he probably was having money issues and someone paid him a visit and made him an offer he couldn't refused. After all, Boucher only received a sentence of 30 days, for injuring a sitting senator.

    Day 2:
    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — Rand Paul's attacker acknowledged Tuesday that he wasn't thinking rationally when he tackled Paul while the Republican senator was doing yard work at his Kentucky home.

    An apologetic Rene Boucher told a jury that he attacked Paul after watching the senator start forming a brush pile near their property line in an upscale Bowling Green subdivision.

    "It was an irrational thing I did, and it's two minutes of my life I wish I could take back," Boucher said. "What I did was wrong."

    The day before the 2017 attack, which left Paul with several broken ribs, Boucher said he had burned another brush pile that Paul had created near the property line. Boucher said he doused that pile with gasoline and set it on fire. An explosion burned his face, neck and arms, and Boucher said he was still in severe pain the next day when he attacked Paul.

    Recounting the attack, Boucher testified that he ran at Paul at about three-quarters speed.

    "My left shoulder hit his ribs and broke his ribs, and for that I am very sorry," Boucher said.

    Earlier Tuesday, radiologist Sean Willgruber, who helped Paul on and off an examination table after the attack, testified that Paul was walking with a "grandmother shuffle."

    Paul needed three or four times longer to get on the table than patients routinely do, Willgruber said. He testified that "it wouldn't be unheard of" for people who had suffered broken ribs to deal with continued pain.

    In his lawsuit against Boucher, Paul is seeking up to $500,000 in compensatory damages and up to $1 million in punitive damages.

    Boucher's lawyer, Matt Baker, has conceded that a "reasonable award" might be in order for Paul's pain and suffering but has said no punitive damages should be awarded.

    Boucher pleaded guilty to assaulting a member of Congress and was sentenced to 30 days behind bars. He served most of his time at a federal prison in Illinois. He also was fined $10,000 and served 100 hours of community service. Federal prosecutors have appealed the sentence, saying 21 months of prison time would have been appropriate.

    While questioning Boucher, Paul's lawyer, Tom Kerrick, wondered whether Boucher had an obsession about his yard. Kerrick also noted that Boucher never filed a complaint with the neighborhood homeowners association about Paul's yard maintenance. Boucher said Tuesday that he talked to the HOA president but conceded he didn't "put anything in writing."

    Good.

    That's still not enough though.

    Jury awards Sen. Rand Paul more than $582,000 in lawsuit against Bowling Green neighbor


    BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WDRB) -- A jury awarded U.S. Sen. Rand Paul more than $582,000 on Wednesday in the lawsuit against his Bowling Green neighbor, Rene Boucher.
    Boucher attacked Paul more than a year ago in a rage over yard waste Paul had piled on their property line. Paul suffered six broken ribs and is recovering from hernia surgery. Boucher pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 days in federal prison, which he already served.
    Paul's lawsuit against Boucher asked for up to $1.5 million in damages. The jury came to a verdict after nearly two hours of deliberation:


    Medical Expenses: $7,834.82
    Pain and Suffering: $200,000
    Punitive Damages: $375,000

    Brawndo's got what plants crave. Its got electrolytes.



    H. L. Mencken said it best:


    ďDemocracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.Ē


    "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
