Robert W (Bob) Schmidt And Crews Law Firm Win Significant Jury Verdict In Sex And Pregnancy Discrimination Lawsuit For UT Austin Professor.
Robert W (Bob) Schmidt and Crews Law Firm won a jury verdict awarding $3 million in emotional distress-related damages in March 2022 in a sex and pregnancy discrimination case on behalf of a UT Austin professor. Federal law in this case imposes a “cap” on emotional distress-related damages to $300,000, so this portion of the jury’s verdict will be reduced in a final judgment. Economic damages were also awarded and are still being sought. The jury’s verdict shows that discrimination is wrong and that employees have the right to be treated fairly and without discrimination.
