(BOISE) – A former Idaho gubernatorial candidate and House member has been ordered to pay $1.4 million in damages to a Treasure Valley couple. In a unanimous decision last week the Idaho Supreme Court ruled that Milt Erhart must pay James and Gale Phillips for damages caused when James fell in a Meridian office building owned by Erhart. Prosecutors blame a faulty stairway on James’ fall and resulting head injury, leaving him with major behavioral changes.
