Some folks call it a jury verdict, I call it a lot of money

A federal jury in Forth Worth, Texas, has answered the age old question: How much is it worth if a female employee receives depraved and violent phone calls from a male co-worker for more than two years, in which he apes the voice of Karl from Sling Blade, threatening to kill her and cut her up. The answer: $15.6 million. On the up-side, the verdict was solely against the co-worker. The employer, American Airlines, was dismissed from the case.

The Star-Telegram has the details.
