This is interesting….. I’m glad I’m not involved in the forced outing of gay men. This would be a lot of money for someone to have to shell out in a civil settlement.
Gay Man Outed on Radio to Receive $270,000 – FOX News
Arbitrator Rebecca Westerfield found on Friday that Hernandez had suffered emotional distress but dismissed claims of sexual harassment. She said that Hernandez had no choice but to quit his job and was owed workers’ compensation.
Hernandez was awarded $250,000 and nearly $20,000 in economic damages because of the emotional distress that led to seven months of unemployment after quitting his job.
Now imagine if a bunch of forced-outed gay men got together and filed a class action lawsuit. Whew. Maybe there *is* money to be made in the blogosphere?
