Jury awards $11.4M in racial bias case against Michigan

FLINT, Mich. A jury has awarded $11.4 million to a Black couple who filed a discrimination lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Corrections.

Attorney Jon Marko says Lisa Griffey was a probation officer who was racially harassed by white co-workers. She says they called her "mammy" and the "Black one."

Marko says her husband, Cedric Griffey, who was a deputy prison warden, was retaliated against because of his wife's legal challenge. A Genesee County jury found Lisa Griffey was subjected to a hostile work environment and suffered an adverse employment action because of her race.

The jury on Monday said Cedric Griffey also suffered. The trial lasted six weeks.
