The jury has spoken, and found Snuggles guilty of reverse discrimination. So says Jeffry Scott of the AJC:
A federal jury on Thursday found in favor of some of the plaintiffs in the long-running DeKalb County discrimination case, awarding damages of $174,000 to at least two of the former parks department workers who filed suit six years ago.
On the losing side were former DeKalb CEO Vernon Jones and his one-time executive assistant, Richard Stogner.
The jury came in Thursday afternoon; Jones, who is running for Congress in the 4th District, was silent and stony-faced as the verdict was read.
No word yet on whether this verdict will help or hurt Jones in his primary against Captain Capsize Hank Johnson. But I’m sure the DeKalb County segment of the Georgia Gang may run long this week.
