Today, per email from Walt Fulton: "Court was scheduled for 7/19, but it was actually held several days ago."
Attributed to an email from Paul's widow, Liz:
"Well, it's all done. The court case against the driver who caused the accident that killed my husband, is finished. Finally.
To our friends, Walt Fulton, Bruce Laidlaw, Gina Spadafori and others - I was going to try and let you all know when it was going to happen, but the court moved the date up with little notice.
The judge accepted our recommendations of probation, driver's education, major community service, and so on, but the judge also added a fine and restitution.
My sister Mary Stout Clipper gave the victim's impact statement for the family and our good friend Lauren Michele Seals gave one for his friends and the community. Lauren showed the court and the young man, Thomas de la Cruz, that Paul was a real man who meant something to the world around him. The judge, the defense attorney, and people in the courtroom were visibly moved.
So, Paul will be with us always and will never be forgotten. But this is done, thankfully, and that door can be closed. Rest in peace, Paul."
