SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A judge has ordered the state to pay a former Iowa Department of Correctional Services worker more than $400,000 in a discrimination lawsuit.

District Judge Mark Eveloff said in a recent filing that supervisors retaliated against 62-year-old Deborah Campbell after she complained about her treatment. He ordered that Campbell be reimbursed for front and back pay, as well as emotional distress.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1iLv0hD ) Campbell was fired in 2008 after working 10 years as a community program monitor for the department. She sued in 2009, claiming she was treated unfairly because of her gender and age.

The Iowa Attorney General’s Office will have 30 days after the judgment is finalized to appeal the ruling. Attorney general spokesman Geoff Greenwood says no decision has been made.
