Article from The Hill by Jacqueline Thomsen.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has filed a civil lawsuit against the neighbor who assaulted him last year.

The lawmaker filed a complaint in Kentucky’s Warren Circuit Court last week seeking a trial by jury and an unspecified amount in damages over Rene Boucher’s assault against him.

The senator alleges in the lawsuit that he will face “future physical pain and mental suffering” as a result as of the injuries inflicted in the assault, and that he “has been deprived of his enjoyment of life.”

He also alleges that Boucher’s assault was “premeditated, planned, intentional and criminal” and that Paul and his family are “concerned for their safety, even on their own property” from Boucher’s “stalking, harassment and illegal actions.”
