Former White House Attorney Held Liable in Ex-wife's Beating

A Stamford jury Tuesday afternoon awarded the ex-wife of former White House attorney John Michael Farren $28.6 million in damages for her near-fatal beating in their New Canaan mansion in 2010. The jury reached its verdict in favor of Mary Margaret Farren about 90 minutes after Judge Robert Genuario sent them to begin deliberations, holding her former husband liable for assault and battery, and the intentional infliction of emotional distress.
