Johnson-Klein sued the institution for gender discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation after she was fired by the school two years ago. A verdict was reached in the trial yesterday, and here are the astonishing rewards J-K won from the jury (which took only hours to deliberate the case):
- $634,254 for past economic losses
- $4.4+ million for future loss of income
- $3 million for past non-economic losses like mental suffering
- $11 million for future pain and suffering(!)
$11M for future pain and suffering? We think that money would’ve been better spent on FSU football coach Pat Hill after he endured watching his defense this season.
