On Thurs. Feb. 15, 2018, a downtown Los Angeles jury awarded Dr. Lauren Pinter-Brown, a former UCLA oncologist, $13 million in a gender discrimination case.  Pinter-Brown alleged that she was forced to take another job after complaining about discriminatory treatment based on her gender.  (The jury rejected Pinter-Brown’s age discrimination claim.)  Among other things, Pinter-Brown claimed that she was subjected to comments such as “angry woman” and “diva” and was told “everyone hates you.”  She also claimed that a male colleague whom she had clashed with would interrupt her or ignore her during meetings and that he had complained about the state of her research.  The jury verdict consisted of approximately $3 million in past and future lost earnings and $10 million in past and future emotional distress damages.
