Polo tycoon John Goodman adopts girlfriend in time for DUI death lawsuit

Polo tycoon John Goodman adopts girlfriend in time for DUI death lawsuit

A Delray Beach adoption attorney called the move by International Polo Club magnate John Goodman to adopt his 42-year old girlfriend both “awful” and “brilliant.”

Mail Online reported that Goodman was allegedly involved in a drunk driving accident that killed 23-year-old Scott Wilson. Police reports said Goodman ran a stop sign in 2010 in Florida and smashed into Wilson, driving his car into a canal. Wilson’s parents are suing Goodman for wrongful death.

The Palm Beach Post reports that Circuit Judge Glenn Kelley had already ruled that a trust fund set up for Goodman's two minor children was not to be considered part of Goodman's financial worth if the Wilsons are awarded damages by a jury.

Then the story becomes bizarre. Court documents say that Goodman legally adopted his 42-year-old girlfriend, Heather Laruso Hutchins, as his daughter this past October in Miami-Dade County. Adoption papers say that Hutchins can legally receive one-third of the trust fund immediately since she is over 35. The trust funds for Goodman’s two children reportedly contain more than $200 million.
