A line supervisor at an Arkansas poultry processing plant has won a jury verdict of more than $14 million on claims that his firing after 32 years of employment was racially motivated. Black worker George Williams was fired in April 2001 after an altercation with a fellow supervisor. Williams sued under Title VII, alleging that his termination was discriminatory and that the plant harbored a hostile work environment.
