A court document filed in the Northern District of Texas shows that a jury unanimously found Shannon Thomason guilty of “harm to Plains Seafood, Inc.” and “the harm to John R. McVey resulted from malice.”

 

The document, dated September 11, 2018 contains information regarding a bankruptcy filing by Thomason on June 29, 2017 in which Thomason attempted to have his debts discharged, some of which include $93,990.00, which he described as a “Judgment lien from a lawsuit.” The court ruled that the debts are nondischargeable “because they are the result of a willful and malicious injury.”

 

The court document states the following:

 

“Thomason’s debt to Plains Seafood and McVey resulted from a judgment issued in a lawsuit filed in a state court. Some background regarding the lawsuit is needed. According to the complaint, Thomason received, by assignment, a judgment entered in favor of Delilah Kellum (Kellum Judgment) against Plains Seafood. Plains Seafood operated a local restaurant, and McVey, according to his testimony, managed the restaurant and had an ownership interest in Plains Seafood. Seeking to collect on the Kellum Judgment, Thomason and a constable entered the restaurant on November 24, 2014, evicted everyone inside the restaurant at the time, changed the door locks, and refused any future entry to the restaurant.”

 

The seven-page document goes on to state:

 

“In the case at hand, the jury expressly found that Thomason’s malice caused plaintiffs’ injuries and awarded exemplary damages: ‘Do you find by clear and convincing evidence that the harm to [Plains Seafood and McVey] resulted from malice?...The jury unanimously answered… ‘Yes.’” Consistent with Kawaauhau and Miller framework, the jury found that Thomason had a subjective motive to cause harm to the plaintiffs. In fact, it was the harm that plaintiffs would suffer that Thomason hoped would coerce plaintiffs into paying the judgment owed.”
