A company president refused to fully honor Donald Chisholm's severance package that was spelled out in his employment contract. So Chisholm sued for breach of contract and won a $36,000 judgment. The kicker: Because the company president's failure to pay was "willful," rather than a mistake, the jury tacked on another $36,000 in damages against the president personally. (Chisholm Jr., v. Ultima Nashua Industrial Corp., No. 2002-456, N.H., 2003)
