A jury awarded a former Maricopa County supervisor $21 million in a civil lawsuit against Pinal County utilities owner George Johnson.  

Andy Kunasek filed a lawsuit in 2013 against Johnson and several others after he said he stopped receiving distributions from a trust. Johnson is the owner of Johnson Utilities and several other companies.

The jury awarded Kunasek $10.5 million in damages. Some of the defendants are also required to pay punitive damages to Kunasek, resulting in an additional $10.5 million. 

Kunasek told The Arizona Republic it was a “horribly long process.” The case took six years. According to Kunasek, the facts were simple but the defense tried to make them more complicated.
