A jury awarded nearly $7 million to a 56-year-old woman who said she was unknowingly infected with herpes by the 77-year-old founder of a hair-care company. The lawsuit alleged that Thomas Redmond knew he had genital herpes for more than 25 years but did not disclose it before his sexual relationship began with Patricia Behr, and did not use a condom. The Riverside County jury awarded Behr $4 million in compensatory damages and $2.75 million in punitive damages. She was also awarded a 2004 BMW car that Redmond had originally given her as a gift. Redmond is the founder of Redmond Products Inc., which was the maker of the Aussie line of hair-care products. The company now belongs to Procter & Gamble Co. The defendant’s lawyer, Robert M. Frisbee, said the verdict is “outrageous” and his client will seek to have it overturned.
