Jury rules in favor of woman who was fired
A Kanawha County jury on Friday found that three members of the West Side's Bob Burdette Center board violated a sexual orientation discrimination policy. The jury concluded that the board did not appoint a woman to head the nonprofit afterschool program because they'd discovered she is a lesbian through her Facebook page. Jessica Hudson had accepted the job offer and quit another job when the offer from the Bob Burdette Center was rescinded. No money was awarded in the trial.
