The jury found that the search of McKinon's home was the proximate cause of his material Loss and mental anguish, and since no statute authorized McKinon's arrest and the search of his home, the same was done without due process of law. Therefore, in 2007 the jury awarded McKinon $151,675 from Bolden: $1,675 for lost property and $150,000 for mental anguish, and $101,675 from Woniya: $1,575 for lost property and $100,000 for mental anguish. The court also awarded $98,456.95 in costs and fees for McKinon's lawyers. See: McKinon v. Bolden, USDC MDFL, Case No. 8:05-cv-1253-T¬26T3M.
