183

A federal jury has awarded $3.35 million to a female ex-firefighter in Ohio who says she was the longtime victim of sexual harassment.

Amie Morningstar of the Circleville Fire Department alleged she was subjected to equipment tampering, clothing destruction and gender-related slurs. She also said she was required to meet tougher training and work standards than male counterparts and denied promotions because she’s a woman.
In a federal case, he said that the harassment got worse after being reported to the superiors. Circleville is about 30 miles south of Columbus. On Wednesday a jury was found in favor of Morningstar. The messages were left for lawyers representing Circleville.

Morningstar’s attorney, Brian Duncan, said he was out of business in 2016, after reporting that he would not work while he was doing his personal trail.
