The verdict is in: Fresno State is liable to former volleyball coach Lindy Vivas to the tune of $5.85 million -- that's $1.75 mllion more than the $4.1 million she was suing for! The award takes into account back pay ($2.625m), future lost wages ($1.8m), and past and future "noneconomic losses" like emotional distress ($1.425 m). Her lawyer says its likely the largest ever granted to a coach suing for retaliation under Title IX.
