On December 5, 2014, a 10-person unanimous Charleston Federal Court jury returned a $650,000.00 verdict in favor of an employee who is a client of the firm. The verdict included $150,000.00 in compensatory damages and $500,000.00 in punitive damages. The verdict was secured against one of the largest employers in the State of South Carolina, Roper St. Francis Hospital (Roper). The firm’s client, a nurse, was found to have been retaliated against in violation of Title VII for complaining of national origin/race discrimination due to the fact she is from Chile, South America. The trial lasted one week and involved testimony of 12 witnesses.
