Johnson-Klein Accepts Revised Damages Award

A brief update to last week's post about the choice confronting Stacy Johnson-Klein in the wake of a judge's ruling on Fresno State's post-trial motions: accept a revised damages award of $6.6 million in place of the $19.1 million the jury awarded her in December, or roll the dice with a new jury.

We thought she would take the $6.6, and she did.

Fresno State could still appeal the judge's ruling. But SJK is looking forward to getting on with her life, telling the Bee that she plans to write a book about her life and become a national advocate for stronger gender-equity laws.
