Army Special Forces major and new girlfriend ordered to pay $3.2 million to ex-wife in revenge porn case | Task and Purpose

Elizabeth Ann Clark a year ago leveled accusations of alienation-of-affection, libel and revenge porn in the case against ex-husband Maj. Adam Matthew Clark and his partner, Lt. Col. Kimberly Rae Barrett, in Cumberland County Superior Court.  “Alienation-of-affection” is the legal term for instances in which someone outside a marital relationship breaks up the marriage.  The verdict came down just before 5 p.m. Monday, lawyers said, following roughly an hour of deliberations at the end of a five-day trial.

Elizabeth Clark’s case said that she and Adam Clark, who is assigned to thee 3rd Special Forces Group at Fort Bragg, had been married since April 2010. They had two children together. She alleged that he began an affair with Barrett in 2016, when Adam Clark was temporarily working at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.

Barrett and Adam Clark’s lawyers argued that there was little evidence that Elizabeth Clark had been harmed by the pictures and comments. They also said there was a lack of direct evidence that the topless photo was shared to Kik. There was evidence a version of it with her naked breast partly covered with a star was shared to Facebook.

The jury ordered Barrett to pay Elizabeth Clark $1.2 million and Adam Clark to pay her $2 million. The judge, Mary Ann Talley, assessed an additional $10,000 on Adam Clark for the revenge porn, Porter said.
