In a Kentucky Civil Rights case, attorneys Sam Nicholson and Marilyn “Linsey” Shrewsbury successfully obtained a jury verdict in favor of their client. These claims included employment discrimination on the basis of race, hostile work environment, and retaliation. The facts giving rise to the cause of action spanned nearly one decade, when the Plaintiff was employed by Norton Healthcare as a Pathologist Assistant from 2006 until her termination in June of 2015.
After seven days of proof and arguments in the Jefferson Circuit Court, Division Ten, the jury rendered its verdict in favor of the Plaintiff on her claim of hostile work environment. The jury awarded damages for pain, suffering and humiliation in the amount of $250,000.00.
