A federal jury awarded crime writer Patricia Cornwell nearly $51 million Tuesday in her lawsuit against her former financial management company, Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP, and a former principal in the firm. The author claimed that Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP was negligent in handling her finances and cost her millions in losses or unaccounted for revenue. The firm defended the negligence and breach of contract claims by arguing she spent money like a drunk sailor and she was overly demanding. This will likely lead to additional claims against Anchin, Block and Anchin given the amount of publicity this large verdict is likely to secure.
