Effingham, Ill. – Earlier today we received reports of a Lawrenceville woman winning nearly $1,000,000 in damages from a civil rights case.
As reported by 103 WAKO, “attorneys for Jade Green, the seven-person jury arrived at the verdict in favor of Green Thursday evening in the Southern District Court of Illinois. Green’s mother, Angela Howser, and Howser’s husband, Jack Howser, were ordered to pay Green a total of $970,000.”
In an interesting turn to this story the Howsers own and operate The Disclosure, and disclosurenewsonline.com.
This settlement was an addition to an original settlement reached between Ms. Green and the Lawrence County Sheriff, Russell Adams, along with former Lawrence County State’s Attorney, Chris Quick.
Adams was contacted for further comment, however he was unavailable to make a comment at this time.
Green sued on the grounds of a civil rights violation expressing that she felt her rights were violated.
The arrest came after a slew of meetings in 2014 that led to the arrest of Green via a Saline County warrant in addition to the state taking her daughter away from her.
Saline County Sheriff’s Department was contacted for further details behind the arrest & the warrant, but there wasn’t anything available to disclose.
