Kleargear must pay $306,750

SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) A federal judge has ruled that an online retailer must pay a Utah couple more than $300 thousand for their time, trouble and suffering after being forced to fight a questionable fine. It's been a long fight for Jen and John Palmer – nearly three years. That is how long the couple struggled to get by with destroyed credit making it impossible for them to buy a house, a car, or even finance a furnace when theirs died. Wednesday the couple took the witness stand in Utah's federal court to tell a judge just how awful it has been for them. It was a punishment levied by a company which simply didn't like what the couple had to say.

Michelman said this case emphasizes the importance of the press in giving citizens a voice and holding powerful people and corporations accountable. "If [Get Gephardt] hadn't brought this story to light then I don't think we would have gotten connected to the Palmers," he said. In May, stated in an email sent to Get Gephardt and other news outlets that they would fight in court, and had every intention of making sure that John and Jen palmer paid every cent of the $3500 fine. Wednesday was their chance and when it came time for court,, as usual, was a no show.

So by default, John and Jen are victorious. A judge ordered to pay $306,750 to the couple for their suffering. As a result of this litigation, John's credit score has also been restored. John and Jen cheered as they left the court room.

Peruvian Gold: Ancient Treasures Unearthed

El Tocado, the largest and most ornate pre-Columbian headdress that has ever been discovered.
Rich natural resources in ancient Peru gave rise to the earliest Andean civilizations. Building on that wealth, skilled artisans crafted extraordinary objects, including gold ceremonial and funerary masks, beakers, and jewelry, rivaling anything made by the ancient Egyptians.

From April 10, 2014 through September 14, 2014 the National Geographic Museum in Washington DC is featuring ancient Peruvian Gold.

The exhibition will journey through civilizations from 1250 B.C. to A.D. 1450, through the ceremonial gold, silver, ceramics, and textiles created by these sophisticated peoples.
