WV jury rules for lesbian in lost job offer

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A jury in Kanawha County has concluded that members of a Charleston after school program rescinded a job offer to a woman after they discovered she is a lesbian.

The jurors reached their verdict Friday night after a two-week trial, according to media reports.

They concluded three members of the Bob Burdette Center withdrew the center's executive director's job to 34-year-old Jessica Hudson after a staffer found out through social media she was in a relationship with another woman.

While the jury found that the three board members discriminated against Hudson, it did not award any money.

Hudson said the case was not about justice, not money.
