Judge takes away women’s jury verdict against Virginia Tech

A judge has overturned a jury’s awards totaling $101,000 based on gender discrimination claims against Virginia Tech.

Roanoke U.S. District Judge James Turk ordered a new trial holding the trial evidence showed Virginia Tech paid fund-raising employees based on experience rather than gender.

The two women plaintiffs both worked at Tech’s Office of University Development from 2006 to 2008. They claimed they were paid less than similarly qualified men in the office and suffered retaliation when they complained.
