On August 2, 2013, Meggan Lambesis filed a civil suit, seeking significant monetary damages from her not-yet-ex-husband. This suit was filed nearly one year after she filed for divorce, in the same courthouse where her husband is facing his much-discussed criminal case.
Meggan claims “personal injury” and “assault, domestic violence” and “intentional infliction of emotional distress;” these injuries from when her husband allegedly hired a hitman.
“The solicitation of another individual to commit murder upon a spouse is abuse….The actions of the Defendant …constitute an actionable assault….Timothy Lambesis’ actions were intentional, reckless and outrageous….the actions of Defendant are not tolerated in a civilized society…” are some statements found in the latest action.
In this case, Meggan Lambesis is asking $1 million for emotional distress and $25,000 in medical expenses to date, in addition to $75,000 for future medical expenses and $1 million in punitive damages. The suit also seeks attorneys’ fees.
The next court date for the civil matter is set for April 2014, in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse.
