Jury Orders Bart Reagor to Pay Over $53 Million to Ford
Bart Reagor was ordered by a jury on Thursday, October 4th, 2019 to pay Ford Motor Credit a total of $53,759,450.96.
Ford claimed that Reagor owed this from the beginning, but the amount was disputed by a public relations firm for Reagor that claimed Ford was attempted to recover almost twice as much as they lost.
Rick Dykes, Reagor's former business partner, settled with Ford by agreeing to owe over $57 million earlier in the year.
Reagor was also barred by a federal judge from commenting on this case to the public. This gag order specifically includes public relations firms that represent Reagor from commenting on the case publicly.
