Former Employee Allowed To Seek Full Punitive Damages from FedEx

A former FedEx employee who was awarded damages in a sexual harassment lawsuit against the company will now be able to seek full punitive damages, a federal appeals court ruled.

Charlotte Boswell was awarded $300,000 for lost earnings, $250,000 for emotional distress and $2.45 million in punitive damages for the company’s violation of her rights in 2007.

A U.S. district judge cut the punitive damages to $300,000, which is the maximum amount set by federal civil rights law for punitive damages. The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted Boswell a new punitive damages trial, saying “she should have been allowed to present her case for damages under California law, which has no dollar limit.” Bob Egelko, San Francisco Chronicle 06/20/2010
