A federal jury in California awarded nearly $186 million to a San Diego area woman who sued AutoZone Inc. saying she was demoted and fired after being told pregnant women can’t do the job of managing a store, court records showed.
The award on Monday by a six-person jury, which follows a two-week trial, includes $872,720 in compensatory damages and another $185 million in punitive damages for plaintiff Rosario Juarez, 43.
She may or may not get the money, however. The company will appeal, so perhaps she will get only a couple million dollars, or even less.
Now that you know about this case, you probably want to get your girlfriend pregnant. But if I were you, I would wait till the court has considered the company’s appeal.
