The Supreme Court has awarded $16 million to former Moravian minister DrCanute Thompson in his defamation lawsuit filed against gender activist Latoya Nugent.
The court has also ordered that she pays legal costs.
Nugent was not in court for the ruling.
The court had entered a default judgment against Nugent after she failed to respond to the claim filed by Thompson.
Nugent, the founder of the advocacy group Tambourine Army, is alleged to have posted comments on Facebook defaming Thompson sometime after the arrest of another Moravian Minister, Rupert Clarke, for sex crimes against a minor.
More details soon.
