Ruling in “Price is Right” Discrimination Case Overturned
A judgement that involved an awarded $8.5 million to a former model on the T.V. show “The Price is Right” has been overturned. This past Tuesday, the judge in the case, Judge Kevin Brazile, overturned the original decision, stating that he hadn’t properly instructed the jury in the case, and that the case would have to be re-tried.
Brandi Cochran, a former model on the popular television program, sued the show, alleging that she was discriminated against when she was not allowed to return to the show after she became pregnant and went on maternity leave. Cochran’s attorneys are hopeful, and have stated that they believe that they will be able to secure an even larger financial award in the new trial.
