Mason civil damages
A judge in Cocke County Civil Court this week ordered Charles "Chucky" Mason, Jr., to pay Kaden Haney damages in connection with a 2015 shooting incident. The case was heard without a jury. Mason had earlier pleaded guilty as a Range II offender to the aggravated assault of Haney, Timothy Stewart and Amber Miller on March 22, 2015. The defendant had argued with the trio who were in a vehicle outside his home before he opened fire on the auto. Haney was struck in the arm by the gunfire. Special Judge Robert Davies heard testimony to determine the amount of damages to be awarded to Haney following an earlier order granting the plaintiff's motion for partial summary judgment in the case. The court held that Mason established his liability when he pleaded guilty to aggravated assault by shooting a gun and hitting Haney. Judge Davies awarded a total judgement of $91,500; $40,000 for past suffering, $4,000 for future suffering, $5,000 for disfigurement, $10,000 fo0r past loss of enjoyment of life and $2,500 for future suffering. The court also ruled that punitive damages of $30,000 should be awarded, based on Mason's guilty pleas which proved intentional and reckless disregard for Haney.
