Surgeon awarded $1.6 million in sex bias suit against Brigham and Women's Hospital
A jury has awarded $1.6 million to a female neurosurgeon at Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital, finding that she was subject to a hostile work environment and that, when she complained, the hospital retaliated against her. The jury's verdict comes after a seven-week trial in a sex discrimination lawsuit filed by Sagun Tuli, MD, against the hospital and her boss, Arthur Day, MD, the chairman of the neurosurgery department. Tuli said in court documents that Day repeatedly made demeaning statements to her while she was operating.
