A federal jury awarded $3.4 million Tuesday to a blind woman who was fired as head of Pennsylvania's state agency for the blind and visually impaired, ruling that she was discriminated against because of her disability. The six-woman, two-man jury awarded her $180,000 in "front pay" -- future wages she lost because she was fired -- but her lawyer said he will instead ask the judge to reinstate her to her old position.
