Former University of Louisville assistant coach wins $371,875 in retaliation lawsuit

A jury has awarded a former University of Louisville track and field assistant coach $371,875 for being fired in retaliation for complaining about being subjected to a hostile work environment.

According to the Courier Journal:

Mary Banker, 33, claimed that she was treated differently because she was a woman and that she was told by track coach Ron Mann to make food arrangements for recruiting lunches; to help in the kitchen with Mann’s wife; and to bake cookies, “bat her eyes” and “flip her hair.”

A jury on Friday awarded Banker $300,000 for mental and emotional distress and $71,875 for lost wages. It ruled that Banker’s termination was motivated by her complaint, but it did not find that she was subjected to a hostile work environment.
