This case was nothing short of shameful. The pain and suffering that innocent
people were forced to endure, which destroyed their lives temporarily, and the
long-reaching effects will never end, makimg it easy to see why Elizabeth Craig
and Mr. Harper are suing. The harm that has been to them can never be fully
undone. There is no way to adequately recover what they have lost in heartache,
reputation, business potential, etc. They are among the finest and most lovely
people ever to be found. So, I'm proud of them for filing this law suit.
It's likely this suit will be thrown out at the earliest opportunity.
Taking goods given in a charitable manner, and re-selling them for profit, while
pretending to be re-routing them to the homeless and needy, is theft by
deception, a felony, and punishable under the law.Whether the
criminal case succeeded or not, the defendants weren't acting above board,
or Nu Skin wouldn't have pressed charges in the first place. If Nu Skin
says their products were stolen, called the police, and the police made a search
(with a warrant) and found said products, charges can be filed - simple as that.
Notice that Nu Skin isn't being sued for turning them in, only
Provo City and the police department. That speaks volumes.
@stanfunky So a person is guilty even if found innocent in a court of law?
boy I am glad we waist all that money for the courts, lets just through everyone
in jail and assume we are all guilty it would save a lot of time if not money.
Torturous interference? Either the attorney or the newspaper has it wrong. The
correct cause of acton is a tortious interference with economic relations.
