Meyers v. Chapman Printing Co., Inc., 840 SW 2d 814 (1992)
So, more than twenty-three years ago this woman sues under Kentucky's Civil Rights Act for on-the-job harassment and wrongful termination. She loses the wrongful termination claim but wins the job harassment claim, for which the jury awards her $100,000.
Then the trial judge awarded her attorneys $150,000 in fees.
The Kentucky Supreme Court said, "Nothing wrong with that!"
Prices have gone up since 1992.
