Golf Course Superintendent Wins $1.5 Million in Denver Age Case


This is not exactly a MDV, since the jury awarded just under $420,000, but when all is said and done, it is the judgment that really matters. And there are lots of bad things that happen (for employers) after a jury verdict for the plaintiff. Here, those bad things included a doubling of the back pay damages because of a finding that the age discrimination was willful, front pay and most painful of all (for the defendant), an award of $680,000 in attorneys fees for the plaintiff's counsel. The Billings Gazette has the story. A good reminder that once a case actually goes to the jury, there are often many hidden costs that can push a six figure verdict into a seven figure judgment. Of course, there is always the appeal.
