INDICE DE GALERIAS
WAVERLY, Iowa (AP) — A jury has awarded more than $80,000 to a former paralegal after finding that Floyd County didn't respond appropriately to her repeated complaints about sexual harassment in the county attorney's office.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/15cfqG2 ) that jurors returned their verdict Wednesday afternoon, finding that Theresa Farmer was sexually harassed by fired County Attorney Jesse Marzen.
Though Farmer complained to county supervisors and other officials about Marzen's actions, which included unwanted touching and sexual comments, the county took no action. The case focused on Marzen's conduct, but she only sued Floyd County.
Jurors awarded Farmer $81,519 for past and future emotional pain and suffering as well as past medical expenses.
Because they didn't find Farmer proved she suffered retaliation, jurors didn't award her money for lost wages or benefits.
