Jury Awards $28.6 Million in Damages to Wife for Brutal Beating by Washington Power-Player Husband

December 29, 2013

After five and a half days of hearing from multiple witnesses and viewing dramatic photos and videos, a Stamford, Conn., jury of six awarded Mary Margaret Farren $28.6 million.

Farren filed a civil suit against her ex-husband, John Michael Farren -- a deputy White House counsel under George W. Bush -- seeking damages in the millions for a brutal bludgeoning she endured at their New Canaan mansion nearly four years ago.

On Jan. 4, 2010, Mary Farren, 47, herself an accomplished attorney and once a rising star at prestigious Skadden Arps in Washington, D.C., served John Farren, 61, with divorce papers.
