Rand Paul Files Civil Suit Against His Attacker
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.”

Good for Rand Paul sue the pants off of them and more if possible
Totally agree Harry! Give Paul Rand the maximum award possible and teach this violent person a good lesson in the only way that mean anything to him; HIS WALLET.
Have to agree. Only way to stop these Idiots on the Left is to fight back. Lawsuits, file complaints etc, these people need to be taken off the street before someone really gets hurt. And I mean Children someone. You can’t blame innocent people for the actions of the Government. You can’t punish innocent people for the actions of the Government. But we can punish you for threatening to do harm. That’s not “Free Speech”.
Sue him right down to his belly button lint Senator. We are with you. He better hope that I’m not on the jury that make the monetary decision of how much to give you!
I can’t believe he’s a Dr. I wouldn’t want him treating me even for a hangnail.
Certainly a reasonable idea, but why didn’t the senator, being the injured party, call for criminal charges.
Because he is not the prosecutor. Looks like the county he lives in has another Jeff the inert Sessions in that office, though.
Alan, I thought he did, but it didn’t happen. Now, if the tables had been turned, Rand Paul would be in jail now.
We have had at least 10 similar incidents this week. I think a bunch of arrests and lawsuits are over due.
Good for you Paul! Hope you win all his money!!
I doubt money has much to do with it. It’s more on principle.
I don’t understand why the one that hurt Rand didn’t get more time in prison,it must have been a democrat judge.
These lawsuits should be done in every instance to stop these haters such as Maxine Waters from inciting further acts of violence!
Only way to hurt these nuts is to hit them where it hurts the most, that’s in the pocketbook. Don’t settle out of court and rack up his lawyers bills and then the jury’s award, wish I could be a juror on your trial.
He sure as Hell wouldn’t be able to afford living next to me anymore if I were Rand.
