Dulin wins discrimination suit against Hospital

Thursday, April 12, 2012, 11:01 pm News Flash Archive

Late this afternoon, a jury in George Dulin's federal discrimination lawsuit ruled that the Greenwood-Leflore Hospital Board had discriminated against him when it fired him as board attorney in part because he is white.

The jury awarded Dulin $82,000 for lost wages, emotional distress, etc.

Here are some documents, including the verdict sheet filled out by the jury:

Under the federal law used to sue the Hospital Board, Dulin also will, in all likelihood, recover his substantial legal costs and attorneys fees. Remember, he had to take his case to the 5th Circuit on appeal to get the trial court judge reversed and to allow his case to proceed to verdict. Those legal costs are going to sting worse than the $82,000 the Hospital has to fork over in direct damages.
