Employment Discrimination

The United States District Court for the District of Kansas awarded damages, back pay, costs, and prejudgment interest to Randall B. Godinet for intentional employment discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Right Act of 1964. Godinet, a Samoan formerly employed at the MTC-operated Flint Hills Job Corps Center in Manhattan, Kansas, alleged he was denied promotions because of his race and color and was retaliated against because of his pursuit of a discrimination claim. After a week-long trial in June 2001, a jury found intentional discrimination on all claims and awarded compensatory damages totaling $20,800, pecuniary damages of $5,700, and punitive damages of $150,000. The district court entered judgment consistent with the jury verdict and awarded $21,251 in back pay, prejudgment interest of $17,248.85 and attorneys’ fees and costs of $257,014.91. That verdict was affirmed on appeal in January 2003.
