$567K jury verdict for sexual harassment in the workplace

A male police department employee from another state has been awarded $567,000 after a jury verdict in a sexual harassment suit.

In his lawsuit, he alleged that he was forced to endure extreme harassment, the likes of which he had never seen in his entire 30-year career with the police force.
