It's his money and he can do what he wants with it!
Garth Brooks made quite a generous donation to an Oklahoma hospital shortly after the death of his mother, who died in 1999. He earmarked $500K to go to the IntegrisCanadian Valley Regional Hospital's women's health center, hoping to help other people's mothers, sisters, aunts, etc. who are also suffering from cancer.
Instead, the hospital took Garth's money and started funneling it out to other projects without his consent, so Garth dragged them to court. Today, not only was Garth vindicated, but the hospital has been ordered to pay Garth back $1 million dollars, half in returning his donation and half in punitive damages for breaching their contract.
They say no good deed goes unpunished, but we don't see it that way in this case. Now, Garth has double the money to give to ANOTHER organization that will honor his mother the way she ought to be.
Alls well that ends well.
