EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Lane County jury has awarded a woman more than $1.4 million in a sexual harassment case against a Eugene neurosurgeon and his business.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/2bdXwgR ) that the jury sided with Chere Bergstrom on Tuesday. An attorney representing the doctor, Glenn Keiper, says they plan to appeal.

Bergstrom had worked for Keiper as a surgical technologist from 2008 to 2015. During that time, she claims he sexually harassed her, made sexual advances toward her and touched her inappropriately.

Keiper’s attorney, Dennis Percell, says there was “a substantial error” in the case and that he’s confident they will win the appeal.

Court records show a woman who resigned from Keiper’s business, the Surgical Spine Center of Eugene, reported similar allegations in 2010.
