Garth Brooks makes $500,000 profit on donation to hospital

Country music superstar Garth Brooks gave half a million dollars to an Oklahoma hospital. He later claimed that they promised to build a women’s center and name it after his late mother, but didn’t. So he sued to get his money back. The hospital showed evidence that the discussions had included a figure as high as $15 million, which makes more sense. Even in rural Oklahoma I doubt you can build much for $500,000. But Brooks testified as to his recollections and the jury awarded him his money back plus $500,000 in punitive damages. BITE ME, Brooks.
