The case name was Cynthia Warmbier, et al, v Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
Chief United States District Judge Beryl A. Howell of the District of Columbia presided over the case.
This was a default judgement. North Korea did not respond or enter an appearance in this case.
Obviously, the plaintiffs will never actually collect a cent of this judgement from North Korea, so it is a symbolic victory only.
Break down of the judgement is pasted below.
(Note to mods: As a work of the federal government, the following quoted material is in the public domain. Attribution is given to Judge Howell.)
For the reasons outlined above, the plaintiffs’ motion for default judgment is granted.
North Korea is liable for the torture, hostage taking, and extrajudicial killing of Otto Warmbier,
and the injuries to his mother and father, Fred and Cindy Warmbier. The plaintiffs are awarded
monetary damages in the following amounts: Otto Warmbier’s estate is entitled to $6,038,308 in
economic losses, $96,375.80 in medical expenses, $15,000,000 in pain and suffering, and
$150,000,000 in punitive damages. Fred and Cindy Warmbier are each entitled to $15,000,000
in solatium damages and a total of $300,000,000 in punitive damages. Thus, the total damage
award is $501,134,683.80.
