Judge Upholds $24M Jury Award in Lawsuit by Employee With Social Anxiety Disorder

A federal district court judge in Massachusetts has upheld a $24 million jury award for a woman who sued her employer for retaliation and discrimination because of her social anxiety disorder.

The employer, PPD Development, has criticized the outcome handed down by a jury in March and in June asked the court to set aside the verdict or reduce the award, which it maintains is excessive and unsupported by the evidence at trial.

But U.S. District Judge Leo T. Sorokin on November 1 rejected PPD’s requests and defended the jury verdict and the multi-million dollar award for former PPD employee Lisa Menninger.
