Jury awards $12M to Fla. billionaire in wine spat

Florida billionaire William Koch, left, and his lawyer John Hueston hold bottles of wine outside Manhattan federal court, Friday, April 12, 2013, in New York. A Manhattan jury concluded the wines were sold to Koch fraudulently at a 2005 auction by a California businessman. The jury awarded him $12 million Friday in punitive damages a day after awarding him $380,000 in compensatory damages. Koch said it's the best he's felt since winning the America's Cup in 1992.
