Two Fyre Festival Attendees Awarded $5 Million!

posted by @Radio1045Johnny - 

Two men who attended the ill-fated Fyre Festival in the Bahamas last year have been awarded $5 Million in damages!  Blogger Seth Crossno and co-plaintiff Mark Thompson (both of North Carolina) sued Fyre Fest co-founder Billy McFarland, last May, for no less than #25,000 for hotels and flights, along with damages including mental anguish, pain, and suffering after spending $13k each on luxury VIP packages.

And, due to all of that anguish, they've been awarded $5 million after McFarland failed to respond to over a year's worth of court proceedings. Each attendee received $1.5 million in compensatory damages and an additional $1 million in punitive damages.  Now, will they actually ever see the money? (source Variety)

Well if that wasn't luxurious. I don't know what is. #fyrefestival #neverforget #wortheverypenny
