$13.25 million in damages.
Defendant Leonard organized and promoted The HIT Squad. The HIT Squad is an ad hoc group of Defendant Portland's employees which targets businesses which Defendant Leonard believes to be undesirable. There are no criteria, standards or regulations by which Defendant Leonard determines which businesses to target. Defendant Leonard's targeting of businesses bears no rational relationship to any legitimate governmental purpose, and is based on his whim and unsupported beliefs and attitudes. The HIT Squad then takes whatever action it chooses in order to put the targeted businesses out of business. These actions also bear no rational relationship to any legitimate governmental purpose.
