Another basis to make Murray’s claim viable is the 1983 Church V Commissioner’s case. The court adopted a similar analysis to the Roemer decision. In the church, the taxpayers got $250000 compensatory damages and a punitive damage of $ 235000 in a defamation lawsuit. The court focused on the nature of the claim and identified that the award for compensation was as a result of humiliation, ridicule and total embarrassment.
