Complaining that it was wrong for U.S. District Judge James Ware to admit certain evidence into Colleen Crangle’s retaliation trial, Stanford University has announced it will ask for a new trial. On Thursday, a federal jury of four men and four women found that Crangle was fired from the Stanford Medical School’s Section of Medical Informatics in March 1997 because she had complained about sexual discrimination.

In doing so, the jurors awarded the 48-year-old research scientist $545,000: $241,000 for back and future pay; $4,000 for counseling expenses; $200,000 for punitive damages; and $100,000 for compensatory damages.
