BOSTON (AP) - A federal jury has rejected the claims of a former prosecutor in the Suffolk district attorney’s office who alleged she was paid less than male colleagues because of her gender.

The Boston Globe (https://bit.ly/1XV3zG2 ) reports that the on Thursday jury unanimously rejected Christina Corda’s claims of discrimination, retaliation and violations of state and federal equal pay laws against her former employer. Corda filed a lawsuit in March 2015 following her termination.

Corda was fired after she unleashed an alcohol-fueled, expletive-laden tirade toward John Towle, District Attorney Daniel Conley’s chief of staff, during a September 2014 going-away party for a co-worker.

Lawyers for the DA’s office successfully argued that Corda failed to account for various other reasons why her colleagues were paid more, including duties and specialties.
