A jury has awarded $840,000 to a former

professor who claimed she faced discrimination and retaliation because she is a woman.

The jury also ruled on Monday that Cindy Louthan, a former assistant professor of elementary education, should be reinstated. Louthan argued in the lawsuit she filed in June 2018, that a supervisor was hostile toward women and treated her differently because of her sex. She accused the Roman Catholic university of failing to investigate her concerns and punishing her for speaking out.

The university said in a statement that it was disappointed in the verdict and is considering its appeal options.
