Physician assistant wins $168M in harassment suit (CA)

Los Angeles Times, March 5, 2012

But in a stunning rebuke of the hospital's side of the story, a jury Wednesday awarded Chopourian $168 million in damages, believed to be the largest judgment for a single victim of workplace harassment in U.S. history.
