    This "trial" was a farce!

    Berrygirly, it's the defendant's own fault that she didn't defend herself, especially since she hired & fired multiple attorneys. It also says a lot that she fled to Oklahoma after she was sued in Arkansas (though that means nothing to the U.S. Marshals who will seize her property if she doesn't pay up). She's the farce, as in "fraud".

    There is a special level in Hell for those who prey on the sick (large health insurance companies included).
