Attorney Assails Rodman

Compiled From Wire Services

Dennis Rodman must pay for his irresponsibility in infecting former Atlanta Hawks cheerleader Lisa Beth Judd with herpes, a disease she will have for the rest of her life, her lawyer said.

“He lied through his teeth - repeatedly, deliberately, without any hint of shame or remorse,” attorney Mark Trigg said in his closing argument.

Trigg asked the jury to award Judd $1.25 million in punitive damages, an additional $580,000 in compensatory damages and more than $191,000 in attorney’s fees.
