Jury Awards $11.4M in Racial Bias Case Against Michigan Department of Corrections — BCNN1 WP

A jury has awarded $11.4 million to a black couple who filed a discrimination lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Attorney Jon Marko says Lisa Griffey was a probation officer who was racially harassed by white co-workers. She says they called her “mammy” and the “black one.”

Marko says her husband, Cedric Griffey, who was a deputy prison warden, was retaliated against because of his wife’s legal challenge. A Genesee County jury found Lisa Griffey was subjected to a hostile work environment and suffered an adverse employment action because of her race. https://bcnn1wp.wordpress.com/2019/09/10/jury-awards-11-4m-in-racial-bias-case-against-michigan-department-of-corrections/
