Records filed in San Diego County Superior Court show that on May 25, a judgment of $5,115 was entered against Kerr and for the 1st Marine Division Association (FMDA), a fine Oceanside-based nonprofit that organizes fundraisers for Marines who currently serve or have served in the storied 1st Marine Division.
