Katt Williams Ordered To Pay Almost $87K In Damages For ‘Outrageous Publicity Stunt’!

Comedy News

The man allegedly assaulted by comedian Micah “Katt” Williams in Gainesville last year was awarded $86,715 in damages in a civil case Wednesday.

Since the incident, Williams has been banned from Hall and Dawson counties and did not appear in court Wednesday morning.

In what Paul Love’s attorney Caroline McGlamry called an “outrageous publicity stunt,” Williams was accused of punching Love in the face and throwing items at his head Feb. 29 inside Leslie’s Pool Supplies in Gainesville.

“I didn’t know what he was going to do, send in his goons, I didn’t know,” Love said.

He chose to sue for damages in hopes that Williams would learn a lesson from the incident from a hit to his pocketbook, McGlamry said.

Love had a brain tumor removed two months prior to the incident. He was fearful the items thrown at him would “dislodge something up there.”

To confirm nothing had damaged his brain, he was required to get an MRI scan and other medical care that totaled $6,500.

Love was also awarded punitive damages of $54,000. McGlamry said they calculated that number based off the earnings Williams could make off a sold-out show ($540,000) and took 10 percent of that.

State Court Judge B.E. Roberts also awarded Love $13,000 for emotional suffering, another $13,000 because he feared for his life with Williams’ malicious intent and $215 in court costs.
