Comments like this always tick me off. No, it's not the ruling that exposes you to costly lawsuits--- it's your BEHAVIOR. They're like children--- upset at getting caught and rufusing to accept any blame for the situation they, themselves, caused.

No, she IS making $15.23 an hour. She sued 11 years ago (it is only now getting to court) after not being promoted repeatedly (according to her) due to sexism and racism.

And it sounds like from the article, that every time there is to be a court decision she gets a raise...which just sounds hinky to me.
