>>A YOGA GURU HAS BEEN
ORDERED TO PAY A $6.4 MILLION ORDER FROM A JURY IN
PUNITIVE DAMAGES BECAUSE OF SEXUAL ASSAULT ALLEGATIONS AND
OTHER ISSUES. THE PERSON IN QUESTION IS
PROBABLY SOMEONE YOU HAVE HEARD OF. IT IS BIKRAM CHOUDHURY, THE
FOUNDER OF BIKRAM YOGA. LET ME GIVE YOU THE DETAILS. BY THE WAY, FUN TRIVIA FOR YOU
HE TRIED TO COPYRIGHT BIKRAM YOGA, THAT WAY IF ANYONE
TRIES TO TEACH IT HE HAS TO APPROVE THE PERSON
BEFORE THEY DO.>>IN OTHER WORDS GET PAID.>>THANKFULLY
HE DID NOT GET THAT COPYRIGHT. SHE
FOUND A DIFFERENT LAWSUIT
AND GOT MONEY FOR THAT, AND LITTLE UNDER $1 MILLION.>>IT’S HARD TO DETERMINE WHAT
ACTUALLY HAPPENED. WHY? HE JUST HAD A HUGE LAWSUIT
THAT CAME OUT AGAINST THEM. IT IS A CIVIL LAWSUIT. IN CRIMINAL CASES, PROSECUTORS
SAID THERE WAS NO CORROBORATING EVIDENCE AND
THEY COULD NOT PROSECUTE. THAT MAKES IT MORE QUESTIONABLE. I DON’T WANT TO THROW
DOUBTS ON WOMEN ñ BUT I WANT TO GIVE YOU
THE CONTEXT HERE. CRIMINAL AND CIVIL CASES [ VIDEO BUFFERING] IN THIS CASE
THERE WAS NO JURY BECAUSE PROSECUTORS THOUGHT THERE
WAS NO WAY THIS HAPPENED. BUT OFTENTIMES IT’S BECAUSE THEY
DON’T THINK THEY CAN WIN THE CASE. IN A CIVIL CASE YOU JUST HAVE TO
HAVE A PREPONDERANCE OF THE EVIDENCE.>>IT’S INTERESTING BECAUSE THE
BURDEN OF PROOF IS VERY DIFFERENT WHEN IT COMES TO A
CIVIL CASE, BUT IF IT IS 51 PERCENT HE DID IT, $6.4 MILLION IS A MASSIVE AMOUNT
OF MONEY IN PUNITIVE DAMAGES.>>YEAH, BUT IN THIS CASE DON’T
GET CONFUSED THAT IS JUST THE STANDARD OF EVIDENCE
AND THE POOL FOR IT. THE JURY WAS VERY CONVINCED AND
IN FACT HUGGED THE PERSON WHO BROUGHT THE CASE. YOU HAVE DETAILS?>>I DO. THEY HUGGED HIS FORMER LEGAL
ANALYST BECAUSE THEY FELT THAT SHE WENT THROUGH
QUITE A BIT WITH HIM. SHE CLAIMS A LOT OF DIFFERENT
INSTANCES OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT. SHE DOES NOT CLAIM
THAT HE RAPED HER. SHE CLAIMS THAT HE WOULD FORCE
HER TO MEET IN HIS HOTEL. ONE TIME HE WAS LAYING IN BED
AND SHE ALLEGES THAT HE SAID COME LAY IN THE
BED WITH ME. THIS IS ALLEGED, HE PULLED HIS
PENIS OUT AND STARTED PEEING IN FRONT OF HER. THE STORIES WERE TOLD TO THE
JURY AND THEN THEY DECIDED THAT SHE HAD BEEN THROUGH A LOT AND
ONE OF THE JURORS HUGGED HER. THERE WAS ANOTHER ELEMENT THAT
I THOUGHT WAS HILARIOUS. UNDER CROSS EXAMINATION, HE
ADMITTED TO KEEPING A FLEET OF 40 LUXURY CARS IN A
VAN NUYS GARAGE.>>THE CONTEXT HERE IS, OKAY,
NOW I HAVE TO PAY UP. BUT THEN HE SAID HE WAS BROKE. BY THE WAY, MY WIFE WENT
TO BIKRAM YOGA. AND THEY SAID DUDE [VIDEO
BUFFERING] THE BIKRAM AUTO ENGINEERING SCHOOL FOR CHILDREN.>>THE JURY STARTED LAUGHING
WHEN HE SAID THAT BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T BELIEVE HIM. IT SEEMS LIKE THEY HAVE GOOD
INTUITION BECAUSE THE GOVERNOR’S OFFICE SAID THAT
THERE WAS NO SUCH PLAN.>>OF COURSE.
KIDS CAN’T EVEN DRIVE. YOU’RE GOING TO TEACH YOUR KIDS
HOW TO DRIVE ON A BENTLEY? NO YOU ARE NOT. THAT IS THE MOST
OBVIOUS LIE OF ALL TIME.
