Total assets and potential of being target of civil suit


A lot of discussion about potential of civil suit after one is cleared of criminal charges in self defense shooting.

From your experience as expert witness, what is the lowest amount of assets possessed by a person sued for a self defense shooting?

I realize you may not always have known the assets of the defendant, but a guess would be of interest to me.

I really can't envision someone with less that $50,000 in total assets being sued. I assume the defendant could use his assets to pay for his defense, so if he lost less than $50,000 available.

Again I realize this is not something where you can provide an exact dollar figure for all circumstances, but some insight would be appreciated. Thanks. Jack
