Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia

David Gans, The Grateful Dead Hour, 29 January 1997

Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia was victorious in her lawsuit against the estate of her late ex-husband, Jerry Garcia. Following the guitarist's death in August 1995, Garcia's widow and third wife, Deborah Koons Garcia, had stopped making the payments that Garcia had agreed to in a very short agreement he and Carolyn wrote themselves and signed in 1993. The judge in Marin County agreed with Carolyn's position and ordered the estate to perform on the contract and reimburse all of Mountain Girl's legal expenses in the case.
