Jurors reached a verdict Monday in the civil court case involving former NASCAR driver Greg Biffle.
According to the jury, Greg Biffle did invade the privacy of his ex-wife, Nicole Biffle.
Nicole Biffle and her mother sued him, claiming Greg Biffle had hidden cameras installed in bedrooms and bathrooms of their mansion, recorded them and showed that video to other people.
There were 12 days of testimony in the case, including expert witnesses discussing the cameras.
Greg Biffle took the stand in court and denied doing anything inappropriate. He said that his wife had known the cameras were there.
The jury said Greg Biffle did “intrude offensively upon the privacy” of his ex-wife with the positioning of hidden cameras in their home.
Jurors awarded $1 in damages Monday. The plaintiff was seeking $9 million.
Jurors decided the cameras did not cause emotional distress.
Both sides claimed victory after the ruling.
“What the jury said sends a loud message that they don’t believe there was wrongdoing,” Greg Biffle told WSOC.
Amy Simpson, the attorney for Nicole Biffle, said it proves Greg Biffle was in the wrong.
A hearing to consider punitive damages is scheduled for next Monday.
