Blake Decision Cut in Half, But What's it Matter?

4/26/2008 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert BlakeAn appeals court upheld the verdict that Robert Blake was liable for his wife's death back in 2001 -- but cut the jury award in half. Let's hope those "Baretta" DVDs sell big this Christmas!

The original ruling was for $30 mil -- but the appeals court knocked that down to $15 million (which will be about $24 mil with interest). Seriously though -- like Robert Blake has that kind of scratch!

Blake was liable for Bonny Lee Bakley's death back in 2005, after he was acquitted of criminal charges.

I dont see how he (or OJ for that matter) can be found innocent crimimally but liable in a civil action. If you are innocent in criminal court, that should be the end of it.

Although I think both he and OJ are guilty. I'm talking the law in general. It's almost like double jeopardy.

I agree that like Simpson, Blake was responsible for murder. The Goldman family is receiving something due to the rights they were given to publish Simpson's book, "If I did it". It is sad that this is the way they are receiving some amount of justice. Bonnie Bakely undoubtably was a schemer and it has been proven she was not a good person, however that does not give Blake the right to kill her. He chose to have sex with her, he got her pregnant and decided to marry her, for the sake of the child. Certainly both men chose murder as an end. Both men certainly deserve to be on death row. Feel sorry for either one of them? Not a chance. Blake like Simpson has a violent streak. And as for Blake blaming his childhood.....he needs to get over it. Plenty of people have less than desirable childhoods but they don't become bullies or murderers. Blake could have bought off Bakely and raised his child..instread he resorted to murder. I doubt if her children from her numerous marriages and affairs will ever see a cent.

OJ and the evidence against him pointed directly at him as the killer... Robert not so much lots of doubt with his case...

I met and went out with his daughter Deli, met her at Magic Mountain on her 16th birthday, we had a blast, and later lost contact..... very nice people...

She looks great    

Sure, come to L.A. to kill your wife, especially if youre famous.

The justice system, criminal to civil, supports violence against women, supports celebrities above all. Sick.

Does anyone really believe he is innocent. It's called Karma baby. Good luck working at the Piggly Wiggly.

He's Boring now    

Wosie, Wosie...remember this has been crying for the kid, little Rosie, only with that clipped NY accent it always sounded like he was saying as he cried, "wosie, wosie, wosie"...

I loved his answer when Babs Walter intereviewed him from the LA County Jail...she asked him "how are you doing in here"? he answered with that Baretta dialect "barbara, how do you kill a dead man"?

The courts once again did not do their job...maybe the Lord will

WTF???    

Well, if Baretta doesn't do all that well, he could always fall back on his old "Little Rascals" episodes. He was such a cute little kid back then. So young, so innocent, never accused of murder... ~SIGH~ Them was the days!
