A state court judge ruled that not only could money be collected from Barronelle’s business, but also from her personally. Rob Ingersoll alleged $7.91 of out-of-pocket expenses to find a different florist. An additional fine of $1000 was also alleged, but the judge ruled that Stutzman also had to pay all legal fees. At one point, it was speculated this could be over $190,000. Since Barronelle was found to be personally liable, she asserted that in her 70’s she potentially could lose her home and savings because of the lawsuit.
