After two days of deliberations, jurors announced that 2 1/2-year-old Madison Scott's blindness was worth $1.43 million in economic damages and pain and suffering. The child's family was represented by Mark Hiepler, a nationally known HMO malpractice lawyer from Oxnard.

An Oxnard police officer who ran over and killed a female sunbather while on beach patrol in an SUV will not face criminal charges, though the accident is a "great tragedy," the Ventura County district attorney's office said Wednesday. Senior Officer Frank Brisslinger drove a Chevy Tahoe directly over Cindy Conolly, 49, as she lay on Mandalay Beach last June.

Re "Suit Challenges Simi's Police Pursuit Policy," March 19. I'm sorry that Shelley Padalecki was injured in the crash. It is a tragedy when any innocent person gets injured during a crime. However, the person solely responsible for this particular crash is the 14-year-old driving the stolen vehicle and evading the police. If this teen had just stolen Padalecki's car or victimized her in any manner, you can rest assured that she would want the police to do their sworn job and catch him. We live in an area where the media love to televise and sensationalize vehicle pursuits.
