MDV: San Antonio County Court Jury Awards $1.3 in Age Claim

One of San Antonio's venerable employers was tagged with a $1.3 million verdict Friday finding Steve Brite, a former fraud investigator for USAA, had been laid off because of his age. He was awarded $185,000 in backpay and $1.1 in punitive damages, which will be reduced because of the damage cap under the TCHRA. The San Antonio Express News has the story.

Update: The Texas Supreme Court threw out the verdict on February 2, 2007 because the case was filed in the wrong court. See MDV Update: Judgment Goes Away -- Case Filed in the Wrong Court. The original story link is dead, but here is one to the San Antonio Business Journal, Jury awards former USAA employee $1.3 million.
