Over the years, I have kept a file of reports of $1,000,000 plus jury verdicts in employment law cases. I hoped that I could learn something from them, thus avoiding having my name ever mentioned prominently in such a story. Jottings seems a perfect place to collect those reports and quite often, the stories give a sense of what did go wrong at trial or with the case. Here's the latest involving a 59 year old employee, a long time 'temporary employee' who had apparently been doing the job for some time, but couldn't pass a physical agility test to become a permanent employee, which would have provided benefits. You can read the initial story here.
