Recently a Nashville judge awarded $9.6 million to Diane Ellis, an in-home caregiver who says she was sexually assaulted by a prominent developer who was once her patient, The Nashville Scene reports. Nashville Circuit Court Judge Joe Binkley signed off on a decision to award Ellis a $9,604,820 judgment against Mike Modi.
