Man must pay jilted fiancée $130K for reneging on engagement (access required)

A McDowell County jury has awarded $130,000 to a woman who was dumped by her fiancé in a breach-of-contract-to-marry claim, a common-law tort that is rarely seen today. The case involved a young woman who worked in her older boyfriend's convenience stores. He asked her to marry him, she accepted, and he told her that they would eventually sell the convenience stores and she would never have to worry about money, according to the plaintiff's attorney, Steven Kropelnicki Jr. (pictured) of Asheville.
