Land fill dumping worth 2,000,000, but female wrestler's sexual harassment claim thrown out of the ring

While large jury verdicts often get reversed they are still good indicators of how serious juries take firings. One type of case that seems to resonate strongly is the termination of an injured employee. An Indiana jury awarded almost 2 million to a land fill employee who suffered the most severe job ever at the workplace and was terminated 8 days after he returned to work. Forguson v. National Serv-All.. But there are clearly cases that juries don't buy. That happened to Nicole Bass, a 6 ft 2 inches, 230 pound female wrestler who took on World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. seeking $120 million for sexual harassment, but found herself bounced by a Brooklyn jury. Bass v. WWE, Inc.
