A judge has overturned an $8.5 million verdict awarded to a former "Price is Right" model in a pregnancy discrimination case and ruled a new trial is necessary.
A jury has awarded a former model on "The Price is Right" more than $7.7 million in punitive damages after determining the show discriminated against her because of her pregnancy.
The producers of "The Price is Right" owe a former model on the show more than $7.7 million in punitive damages for discriminating against her after a pregnancy, a jury determined Wednesday.
Jurors awarded nearly $777,000 Tuesday to a former "The Price is Right" model who claimed she was discriminated against by producers because of her pregnancy.
Cochran alleged she was discriminated against after becoming pregnant.
"I'm humbled. I'm shocked," Cochran said after the jury announced its verdict. "I'm happy that justice was served today not only for women in the entertainment industry, but women in the workplace."
