Arizona Developer Loses $21M to Ex-County Supervisor

Former Maricopa County Supervisor Andy Kunasek won a $21 million award following a jury verdict this week in a 2013 lawsuit against developer George Johnson and his family. Kunasek had alleged that Johnson cut him out of a lucrative business deal after Kunasek refused to do him a political favor. Following a four-week trial, a Maricopa County jury agreed, awarding a total $21 million in damages from various defendants. George Johnson, the 87-year-old patriarch of the family, is on the hook for the bulk of the money. Johnson’s developments include the Johnson Ranch housing community in San Tan Valley, and the La Camarilla sports club in Scottsdale. His water utility company, Johnson Utilities, serves parts of Pinal County.
