Michigan Jury Awards $300K to Hunter Beaten at Bar

January 21, 2010

A jury in Michigan’s Thumb has awarded nearly $300,000 to a hunter whose face was smashed while trying to help a friend who had danced with another man’s wife.

Carl Schnorr’s jaw was wired shut for four months after the December 2006 incident at Long Shot Lanes in Bad Axe.

Schnorr’s lawyer, John Perrin, says the Macomb County man was attacked outside the bar around closing time.

Perrin says Schnorr was trying to help a friend who was dragged out by bouncers who didn’t like him dancing with a certain woman.

The four-day trial ended Friday in Huron County, 110 miles north of Detroit. The 38-year-old Schnorr sued the bar and the alleged assailant, Jason Krause. Messages seeking comment were left with their lawyers.
