Publisher Description

The defendants, Homer Wolfe and Bear Valley Church of Christ (Church), appeal from judgments entered on jury verdicts in favor of plaintiffs, Denise DeBose (mother) and J.D.B. (minor), based on findings that both defendants breached a fiduciary duty owed to both plaintiffs and that they were guilty of outrageous conduct with respect to the minor. In addition, the Church was found liable to the minor because of its negligence in hiring and supervising Wolfe, a pastor employed by it. The minor cross-appeals, asserting that the court committed instructional error with respect to this claim of negligence. Although we conclude that the evidence was sufficient to sustain the judgments, we also conclude that the several verdicts upon which the judgment for the minor was based are either duplicative of the damages awarded him or are otherwise inconsistent. In addition, we conclude that the trial court erroneously admitted improper expert testimony and that it committed instructional error. Hence, we reverse and remand the cause for a new trial.
