Victim of vicious Main Street attack awarded $466,257
The two men responsible for a violent attack along Main Street during the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 were ordered on Thursday to pay the victim $466,257.33, The Park Record reported.
Third District Court Judge Ryan Harris entered the ruling in a lawsuit the victim filed against the two. Ryan Bilbrey, who was attacked on Jan. 18, 2009, was awarded $250,000 in general damages, $125,257.33 to compensate him for medical bills and $91,000 in lost wages.
John Cook, who inflicted the worst of Bilbrey's injuries, was ordered to pay 70 percent of the total, or $326,380.13. Kyle Erickson, the other person involved, was ordered to pay the remaining 30 percent, or $139,877.20.
"I'm satisfied with the judgment, 100 percent," Bilbrey said, calling the figure "reasonable."
