D.C. – A group of police officers were awarded $900,000 in a suit against the police department alleging they were retaliated against for filing a racial discrimination complaint.  The Washington Post has a story about it here.

CA – A jury awarded $159,000 to a former state agency supervisor who was terminated for reporting sexual harassment against female coworkers.

CA – A federal appeals court granted a new trial on punitive damages to a former employee who won a $2.45 million punitive damages award in a hostile work environment suit against her former company.  The trial court had reduced the award to $300,000 per the federal damages cap, but the appeals court held that punitive damages should have been determined in accordance with California law, which has no statutory cap for punitives.

NY – Drug-maker Novartis agreed to pay $152.5 million to settle a gender discrimination class action that resulted in a $250 million punitive damages award in district court.
