After deliberating late into the night of a rare Saturday trial session, jurors in a Kentucky state court trial partially sided with Paula Singer in a wrongful-termination action by delivering a judgment of $47,417 against a prominent equine insurance agency and former boss Richard Vimont, but awarded her no punitive or emotional distress damages.
In a Kentucky court trial interrupted for two days by a paralyzing ice storm, jurors returned to hear chilling testimony that a manager was fired from her job with an equine insurance agency because she terrorized her staff, and not because she was on the verge of discovering an international scheme of fraud.
Jurors in a Kentucky state courthouse are basically asked to believe one of two things pertinent to a civil lawsuit being tried there: Former Kentucky resident Paula Singer was either fired from Bluegrass Bloodstock Agency in 2001 for being a poor manager; or, that the former head of the company's equine insurance division was unjustly terminated because she was on the verge of uncovering a scheme of international fraud involving her boss.
